This event is open to Columbia University Students with valid student ID.
Mohammad Kabiya محمد كعب is an Israeli-Muslim Bedouin who was born and raised in the northern Israeli village of Kabiya (named after his family). Kabiya village became a part of Israel in 1948 during Israel’s independence, as they fought side by side with the Jews and embraced their newly found state, officially becoming proud Israelis. At the age of 18, Mohammad joined the IDF and served in the Air Force as a Search & Rescue soldier. Today, he is an activist that builds bridges between different minority communities in Israel. He also has become a strategic consultant for the IDF, specializing in Bedouin and Foreign Affairs, and represents Israeli Bedouins in international politics.
SSI Columbia is bringing this hero, activist, and rising leader to share his story and perspective on the future of Israel.
