Teach others. Have conversations. Advocate for your beliefs.
The final piece of Israel education is learning how to use your knowledge. Only once you are able to wield your wisdom and work to share it with others will your learning truly be worth it.
How do I do this?
Applying knowledge comes in three forms: teaching, having discussions, and advocacy.
Share your tools! Tell your friends about what you've read and give them the articles you read.
Bring it up in conversation! Israel can be a lunchtime conversation topic if you want it to be.
Remember that a discussion is not a debate. Listen to other people's ideas before you start formulating a response.
Use facts. If you make a claim, provide evidence. Share what you know so that everyone is on the same page about what there is to be discussed.
Step outside of your comfort zone. There's no reason to preach to the choir!
Stay calm at all times. Yelling will delegitimize what you say, no matter how coherent it is.
I'm planning a program/event. How do I incorporate this?
Talk about real issues! Bringing to light groups like Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions or Students for Justice in Palestine will give people a more nuanced understanding of those who may disagree with them. Don't tell people what to say or think, but rather how to articulate themselves accurately and address the issues that they and others care about.
