Viewers of ‘Crossing the Line’ Encouraged to Get Educated and Step Up For Israel
JerusalemOnlineU.com’s ‘Step Up For Israel’ initiative is countering the activities designed to vilify Israel on college campuses during the 8th annual “Israel Apartheid Week” (Feb. 27-March 3) with an educational campaign to strengthen parents’ and students’ support for Israel. After watching the powerful award-winning film, Crossing the Line: The Intifada Comes to Campus, for free online, viewers are encouraged to learn about Jerusalem, facts from Israeli and Jewish history, and the values of the Israeli people, by taking the 4-part Step Up For Israel mini-course. The course highlights Israel’s vast worldwide contributions and explains how the map of Israel affects the demographics of the region.
Step Up For Israel is an international, grassroots campaign that connects individuals and communities to Israel by providing a strong foundation in Israel education and activist opportunities. The campaign, chaired Professor Alan Dershowitz and Ambassador Dore Gold, provides basic knowledge of Jewish History, the status of Jerusalem, facts and history about the Israel map and the contested borders, and a deeper understanding of the people and State of Israel.
“Parents and students alike must recognize the nature of the disturbing anti-Israel trend taking root on college campuses, if we are to strengthen our resolve and ‘Step Up for Israel,’ says Amy Holtz, President of JerusalemOnlineU.com. “We urge individuals, schools, synagogues and communities to watch Crossing the Line, and to engage in the Israel educational initiatives offered by StepUpForIsrael.com.
“Learn the facts about Jerusalem, study how the map of Israel and the country’s disputed borders affect politics and policy, and understand Jewish history. Through understanding the realities and educating others, we can move one step closer to defeating the biased one-sided and hateful perspective on Israel.”
