At its conference in Washington, D.C., this week, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) recognized Ido Adulamy, the Jewish Agency Israel Fellow to Hillel at the University of Southern California, as one of its best allies on North American college campuses.
It was the second consecutive year that the influential pro-Israel lobby has recognized Adulamy’s work helping to advance its agenda on campus.
Nominated by USC students affiliated with AIPAC, Adulamy was singled out for his efforts working with pro-Israel students in the business school and connecting pro-Israel student groups and non-Jewish student groups on campus.
Adulamy is one of 50 Israel Fellows sent by the Jewish Agency for Israel to work with Hillel on campuses across North America. Four of the fellows are based on campuses in the Los Angeles area. The Jewish Agency is working with Hillel to grow the program, according to Joshua Berkman, the Jewish Agency’s associate director for communications, and plans to send 60 fellows to Hillels on North American campuses in the fall of 2012.
