iCan Teen Task Force Hears From StandWithUs

The iCAN Teen Task Force is an elite leadership group preparing high school students with knowledge and confidence to tackle anti-Semitism and anti-Israel sentiment in the world today.

The third meeting at the Jewish Federation in Paramus on Wednesday, November 28, discussed Israeli innovations. In attendance were more than 40 teens from 15 area high schools—both private Jewish days schools and public schools.

After a dinner, the teens discussed current events and the group shared and listened to instances of anti-Semitism and
anti-Israel bias close to home. The highlighted feature of the evening was an interactive and enlightening presentation by Paul Friedman from StandWithUs on the topic of Israeli Innovations and how the country has become a world leader in the technology sector and how Israel has exported technological systems from agriculture to mass transit across the globe.

To attend the next meet on December 12 or to get involved, please contact [email protected] or 201-820-3946.
