Israel Education

Zeta Beta Tau assists our undergraduate brothers and their peer students in establishing a relationship with the State of Israel. Driven by our Heritage Initiative, the Fraternity actively seeks ways to partner with organizations that align themselves with similar values to develop educational programs that enable learning, promote dialogue, and generates ideas for the support of Israel. We are proud of our rich heritage and founding as the world’s first Jewish fraternity.

Israel Now!


We are proud to offer the Israel Now! program to an in-person experience. As the world’s first Jewish Fraternity, ZBT has a responsibility to be educating our brothers on what being a Zionist Fraternity is and how brothers can support Israel. Israel Now! will have a focus on the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement in the U.S. with particular attention to California and on college campuses. ZBT has held a policy condemning the BDS movement since 2015.

Brothers who register will be asked to attend the Holocaust Museum LA before the Israel Now! program on October 12. Tickets provided; details will be emailed after registering.

  • October 12, 4 p.m. PT
  • Skirball Center, 2701 N. Sepulveda Blvd., Los Angeles, California
  • Keynote: Daniel Gold, Executive Director of UCLA Hillel

If you are an undergraduate brother not located on the West Coast and are interested in attending Israel Now!, please email Chief Experience Officer Ricky Kirby at rkirby@zbtnational.org to discuss travel assistance potential.


Israel Now! will continue with two webinars to allow brothers to continue to learn. Save the date.

October 25: Actions you can take as a ZBT advocate for Israel. ZBT alumni facilitators will coach you through what you can do within your chapter and as an individual student to support pro-Israel causes.

  • Week of November 13: Current events in Israel with The iCenter.

Educational programming at Israel Now! is made possible in part by the generous support of the Zeta Beta Tau Foundation. Learn how you can support the Zeta Beta Tau Foundation at zbtfoundation.org!
