Combating the Delegitimization of Israel

Hadassah is a staunch advocate against the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and all efforts aimed to tarnish and delegitimize the State of Israel. Hadassah maintains its long-standing policy against all forms of organized boycotts—opposing destructive actions in favor of constructive dialogue in order to pursue a future of peace in the Middle East.

Hadassah, in collaboration with the Israel Action Network, developed How to Talk about Israel, a guide to effective pro-Israel advocacy. This guide combines fundamental techniques and core messages designed to help supporters effectively respond to challenging questions about Israel. How to Talk about Israel also includes role-play Scenarios for Effective Communication, and resources to highlight Israel’s shared values with the U.S., the newest Israeli technological advances and Israel’s leadership in world health.
