Groups on Campus
IlliniPAC is a bi-partisan, proactive group of pro-Israel students that promotes the US-Israel relationship by educating elected student leaders on campus and local members of congress about the benefits of strong ties between the two nations. We specifically seek out individuals who have identified themselves as leaders because they have the distinctive power to impact others. We build relationships with said people and help them create a personal and political connection with Israel. We believe these strong relationships will prompt elected officials and student leaders to take action in support of the US-Israel relationship now and in the future. You can learn more on their Facebook page or on their website!

We are a nationwide movement of campus chapters advocating and educating on colleges and universities, in our communities and on Capitol Hill for vigorous and sustained American leadership in facilitating a negotiated, two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We are deeply committed to ensuring Israel’s future as the democratic homeland of the Jewish people, which can only be secured through a two-state resolution.
TAMID Israel Investment Group is a unique organization linking business-minded students with Israeli companies through educational, professional and fellowship experiences. Although the University of Illinois offers a number of opportunities for people to forge a connection with Israel through religious, social, and political interests, there is no business interest group. TAMID is comprised of three components; an education phase, business application phase and a fellowship opportunity in Israel in addition to allowing students to create connections with peers, University professors and industry professionals.
