Our Mission

Bruins for Israel is the premier pro-Israel group at the University of California, Los Angeles. Our organization works to educate the campus community on the politics, history and culture of the Jewish State of Israel. We focus on promoting Israel as a democratic nation that shares America’s western values and contributes to the world in a variety of fields, including technology, industry, medicine and the arts.

We advocate for a negotiated two state solution: a Jewish state of Israel and a Palestinian state. By avoiding partisan stances on Israeli politics, we try to allow students to reach their own conclusions on the Jewish nation. By framing factual current events in a historical context, we give the campus community the tools to comprehend the turmoil. We present the facts about the state of Israel while subsequently debunking the misinformation abounding popular opinion and the media. We stand firmly against any form of delegitimization of Israel as a Jewish state.

Bruins For Israel holds open meetings and events throughout the academic year and encourages anyone interested in Israel to stop by at anytime.
