A Pro-Israel organization recently created a “Zionist-inspired” calendar, to bolster campus pro-Israel support. “Designed to promote a positive image of Israel,” the American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise built the calendar to feature twelve “Israel-related themes.”
March is…Israel Women’s History Month banner screen shot.
Each month has a calendar of events, where students from different campuses can coordinate hosting national events. This month’s theme is “America-Israel Friendship Month,” and March is “Israel Women’s History Month.”
Each month also includes resources such as recommended books, event programs, videos and important historical facts. For example, “Women’s History Month” not only includes a great visual that could be mistaken for “Military History Month,” but the feminist themed month includes unique possible events such as:

Hold a Purim carnival and invite non-Jews to participate and learn about the female role models of the story – Vashti and Esther.

The new calendar, launched a week ago, includes a sparse handful of user-uploaded events.
