Israeli Soldiers' Stories -- Real Soldiers. Real Lives. Real People.
The StandWithUs Israeli Soldiers’ Stories tour is an innovative program featuring reserve duty Israeli college students who talk about the Israeli-Arab conflict, giving a human face to the IDF uniform. In addition to IDF service, they are graduates of the StandWithUs Israel Fellowship, a unique public diplomacy program that selects and trains 150 student leaders each year from six Israeli universities. The soldiers speak in a number of cities across North America, in venues including university campuses, schools, synagogues, and churches. Our soldiers share their personal experiences with tens of thousands of students and community members each year. In 2013 the tour spoke at 150 different events, reaching live audiences of over 7,000 individuals, and countless numbers of people through press coverage and social media.
