Learn to Advocate for Israel from the Master 

  David Olesker 
*** Gain the confidence, tools and information necessary for confronting those who oppose Israel from a spellbinding and entertaining speaker  ***

This unique opportunity is geared towards every pro-Israel member of our community 

Mr. Olesker is the premier trainer in Israel-advocacy and will be in the Bay Area for a special engagement.    




We will review:


·      Why we have so much difficulty in getting the facts across about Israel.

·      How to command the attention of audiences.

·   How we can move to dominate the discourse.

·   What kinds of strategies may work to counter anti-Israel efforts in our community.    



·    A case-study approach to counter the upcoming Goldstone talks in the area.

Sunday February 13th at 1PM

This event runs 4 hours with a break in the middle.

The director of one Jewish Federation’s community and public affairs department wrote of Olesker (see here), “David Olesker is widely recognized as one of the top two or three Israel-advocacy trainers in the world. His presentations are not only immensely useful, they’re entertaining.” One student leader commented, “Olesker gave us a framework for developing pro-Israel campaigns that we can now follow even though he is off doing other things. The saying goes ‘Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.’ Well, Olesker taught us how to fish, and I am confident that we will be able to develop, on our own, more pro-active campaigns in the years to come.” An AIPAC regional director said, “Olesker consistently sends [participants] away educated, motivated and entertained.”
