Israel Advocacy

Rabbi Klein is a mentor for Wildcats for Israel, the pro-Israel student group at Northwestern.  In addition, he has spoken many times for AIPAC at their Policy Conference, Saban Leadership Seminar, and local advocacy gatherings.

In 2004, Northwestern was selected as one of four campuses for AIPAC’s CORE pilot education program.  A group of 30 students met regularly at Chabad House for advocacy training, to become more comfortable talking about Israel, and to identify creative ways to generate support for the Jewish state.
