About the speakers:

Wayne Firestone has held leadership positions in Jewish communal affairs since his undergraduate years at the University of Miami where he was a Hillel activist. Firestone was named Hillel's executive vice president for the United States in September 2005, a position that enabled him to direct the organization's U.S. operations. He simultaneously served as the staff director of Hillel's Strategic Planning Committee which has developed a five-year plan for the organization. Firestone joined Hillel in a professional capacity in September 2002 when he was appointed executive director of the Israel on Campus Coalition, a partnership of Hillel and the Schusterman Family Foundation that brings together 35 pro-Israel groups working on college campuses.

Stephen Kuperberg is the executive director of the Israel on Campus Coalition. Before taking this position, he was a partner with the international law firm of Hogan & Hartson, LLP, in Washington, D.C. He has previously served as a state and federal prosecutor, where he tried hundreds of cases before judges and juries. Before entering the field of law, Steve was a field mobilizer for AIPAC, where he worked with thousands of activists around the country to organize and advocate effectively for the pro-Israel agenda. Steve attained both his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Michigan. Following his undergraduate studies, he served as a fellowship volunteer on Project OTZMA, a year-long community service program in Israel.

Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi is the founder and president of The Israel Project (TIP), an international non-profit organization devoted to educating the press and the public about Israel while promoting security, freedom and peace. TIP is a non-profit educational organization that provides factual information about Israel and the Middle East to the press, policy makers and the public. Mizrahi meets regularly with top Israeli leaders including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Shimon Peres, Ambassador Michael Oren, and Deputy Foreign Minister Daniel Ayalon. She also works frequently with pro-Israel organizations including the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, Jewish federations, Jewish community relations councils and Hillel organizations. Mizrahi previously served as a foreign affairs legislative assistant to the U.S. Congress. The Forward newspaper has twice listed Mizrahi in its "Forward 50" most influential Jews in America.
