New grassroots guide to supporting Israel
AN ADVOCACY guide for grassroots supporters of Israel has been developed by the Board of Deputies.
Grassroots Israel Activism: A Toolkit is published by the Fair Play Campaign Group, established by the Board last year to coordinate a response to proponents of an academic boycott of Israel.
The guide is being serialised, with the opening chapter advising on gen- erating positive media coverage and how to respond to bias or imbalance. Future instalments will cover contacts with politicians and charities and internet advocacy.
A Fair Play representative said the project “highlights the close collaboration between the Board of Deputies and other groups who support balanced and informed discussion about Israel”.
