Confederation of Friends of Israel in Scotland

What kind of people become involved with COFIS?

We are ordinary people who want to see peace in the Middle East. We want to inform people about the great benefits in technology and medicine that Israel brings to the world, and about the work that Israel does to protect human rights and preserve peace in an unstable region where Israel is the only democracy. We want to challenge the lies that are spread by hateful individuals and hate groups who claim to care about ‘the Palestinians’ but really just want to attack Israel. We want to ensure that Jews feel safe in Scotland and we want to raise public awareness that hatred directed at Israel always ends with attacks against Jewish people.

Stand With Us

StandWithUs UK is an Israel educational charity.

Our staff and volunteers are inspired by our love for Israel and the belief that education is the road to peace. StandWithUs UK is dedicated to educating people of all ages about Israel and to combating the Antisemitism and extremism that often distorts the issues.

We believe that knowledge of the facts will correct common prejudices about the Arab-Israeli conflict and will promote discussions and policies that can help promote peace in the region.

Through cutting edge print materials, speakers, programmes, conferences, missions to Israel, campaigns, social media and other internet resources including educational films, we ensure that the story of Israel’s achievements and ongoing challenges is told on University campuses and in communities across the UK. 

StandWithUs UK is active on three levels in the UK; Student, Community and Social Media. Through our student University and Sixth form programmes we train and equip the next generation of student leaders with the tools and knowledge to be effective Israel educators. In the community we run educational programmes and provide printed resources and materials, aiding the education of Israel to the wider public.

We are active on all major social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, regularly reaching millions in peak months with educational Israel content. 

StandWithUs UK is one of eighteen international StandWithUs chapters across the U.S., Canada, Australia, the UK and Israel.
