Understanding and battling anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism through webinars featuring important voices about Israel

The Gary Shapiro Israel Speaker Series educates Jewish high school students before they go to colleges and universities where they can face an abundance of coordinated antisemitism and anti-Zionism.
Because the speakers are so important, the series is also open to the community.

About Gary Shapiro

The Gary Shapiro Israel Speaker Series is dedicated to the memory of Rabbi Cantor Gary Shapiro

Gary Shapiro OBM was a pillar of the Jewish community. He was a wise and respected Rabbi and Cantor, as well as a uniquely brilliant singer, songwriter, comedian, and performer. He was a loving and devoted son, brother, brother-in-law, nephew, cousin, uncle, and friend of Israel.


Most of all, Gary was a one-of-a-kind teacher whose lessons in spirituality were infused with humor and song. He inspired thousands of students to develop a deeper love of Judaism, the Torah, and the state of Israel. Perhaps no greater testament to the influence of Gary’s teachings are the many students who have gone on to become Rabbis and Cantors in their own right.


Gary loved this program, so it is beshert that through the Gary Shapiro Israel Speaker Series, his legacy of teaching will continue to inspire youth and the Jewish people—creating an indelible mark on generations to come.



It is costly battling the behemoth and heavily-funded Wikipedia. Presently, The Israel Group is the only nonprofit publicly and privately working to stop Wikipedia’s anti-Israel bias. This takes funding.
