About StandWithUs UK
StandWithUs UK is an Israel education charity. Our staff and volunteers are inspired by our love for Israel and the belief that education is the road to peace. StandWithUs UK is dedicated to educating people of all ages about Israel and to combating the anti-Semitism and extremism that often distorts the issues. We believe that knowledge of the facts will correct common prejudices about the Arab-Israeli conflict and will promote discussions and policies that can help promote peace in the region. Through cutting edge print materials, speakers, programmes, conferences, missions to Israel, campaigns, social media and other internet resources including educational films, we ensure that the story of Israel’s achievements and ongoing challenges is told on University campuses and in communities across the UK.
