Bears for Israel

Bears for Israel aims to be an inclusive, pro-active, and pro-Israel voice that promotes open dialogue on the UC Berkeley campus. We advocate for the existence of the Jewish and democratic state. We work to build relationships with various student groups and on and off campus partners in order to form a more educated and informed pro-Israel student body.

Weekly General Membership Meeting: BFI Brews is every Wednesday from 6:45-7:45pm.
