Hasbara Fellowship Speakers Bureau Hasbara Fellowships describes itself as "a program spearheaded by Aish International" which "educates and trains university students to be effective pro-Israel activists on their campuses." [1] (hasbara is commonly interpreted as propaganda for Israel).

"Hasbara Fellowships, started in 2001 in conjunction with Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, brings hundreds of students to Israel every summer and winter, giving them the information and tools to return to their campuses as leaders in the fight for Israel's image. So far, Hasbara Fellowships has trained nearly 1000 students on over 200 campuses. Upon returning from the program, the Hasbara Fellows receive support from our staff, which offers various campaigns, programs, speakers and other materials and tools," it states on its website. [1]

As part of its work, the Hasbara Fellowships organizes a Speakers Bureau with the primary focus on promoting Israle on campuses in the United States and Canada.
