Tikvah: The Zionist Voice on Campus is an independent grassroots student-led organization at UC Berkeley, founded in 2007, whose mission is to promote Zionism on campus and to educate the UC Berkeley community about Israel and Zionism. We believe in the State of Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish and democratic state and we strongly oppose any attempt to delegitimize this fundamental right. We are also committed to being a strong pro-Israel voice on campus and to combat Antisemitism in all of its forms.

General Board Meeting Times: Friday, 4PM
