New grass­roots guide to sup­port­ing Is­rael

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY LIFE -

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”.
