Israel Advocacy Summit

The Israel Advocacy Summit is a weekend-long program, open to all brothers of ZBT, gives attendees the unique opportunity to learn from and network with representatives from agencies in the United States that support the Mission of Zeta Beta Tau and Israel and to connect with brothers who share similar values. The purpose of this program is to help ZBT brothers gain personal leadership skills that help them to become outstanding Israel advocates and leaders on campus. Programming is made possible by the generous support of the Zeta Beta Tau Foundation.

  • Opportunity to connect with brothers who share similar values.

  • Learn and appreciate the many reasons why ZBT supports Israel.

  • Gain an understanding of strategies and tactics to employ on campus to support Israel and combat anti-Semitism.

The expertise provided by partner organizations is essential to the educational success of our brothers. The organizations participating in the Israel Advocacy Summit have included:


  • Embassy of Israel

  • Israel on Campus Coalition

  • AIPAC: American Israel Public Action Committee

  • Jewish Federations of North America

  • The David Project

“ZBT was founded by staunch champions of a Jewish state. I believe that ZBT brothers today should be strong advocates of Israel, America’s democratic ally in the heart of a dangerous Middle East.

“That is why I hope that ZBT will educate brothers about Israel and ensure that every chapter can participate in its Israel Advocacy Summit.”

Ron Dermer Theta (University of Pennsylvania) ’93 Israel’s Ambassador to the United States
