Learn how to represent Israel abroad

The Gideon Group is the flagship project of Reservists on Duty that constitutes the comprehensive training program for the organization’s activists. The purpose of the training program is to instill significant and in-depth knowledge in every aspect regarding the reality in Israel, both as it is today and from a historical perspective. In addition to the extensive content, you will also learn in the Gideon Group about the key players in the intricate foreign relations sphere, particularly about the boycott organizations that are leading the de-legitimization campaign against Israel. The Gideon Group enables you to acquire tools to act in the diplomatic field and to cope with anti-Israel activists on campuses in order to combat the lies that are being spread about the State of Israel.

This group of activists is the core of our organization.

Lectures and meetings with opinion leaders, journalists, military personnel, politicians and leading intellectuals.

Practical workshops in public speaking, giving lectures, debating, editing videos and more.

“The Gideon Group has given me the opportunity to personally influence the lives of Jewish and pro-Israel students who are being harassed by BDS groups operating on American campuses.”

Leor Bialy

Gideon Group Alumni

“The Gideon Group has given us a platform for defending Israel using our experiences from the IDF. Students on today’s campuses are not interested in facts—stories are what resonates with them. It’s amazing to see the change in their perspectives as soon as they hear our stories.”

Daniel Hochman

Gideon Group Alumni

“Sitting in Israel and watching how Israel’s name continues to be slandered around the world doesn’t feel good, especially when I know that I can help. I know that I can make a difference and that the Gideon group can give me the opportunity to engage in meaningful dialog and help others learn the truth about Israel.”
