Arutz Sheva reports: Acclaimed actor Michael Douglas and Jewish Agency chairman Natan Sharansky will appear on three college campuses in the U.S. to speak to students about Israel and anti-Semitism, the Genesis Prize Foundation announced Wednesday. 

The program, called “Jewish Journeys: A Conversation with Michael Douglas and Natan Sharansky,” is co-hosted by the Genesis Prize Foundation, Hillel International, and The Jewish Agency for Israel.

The pair will visit Brown University in Rhode Island on January 28, Stanford University in California on February 2, and the University of California at Santa Barbara on February 3.

“This is the first time, in this current period of heightened anti-Israel activity on campus, that a Hollywood celebrity has offered to join with a world Jewish leader to visit U.S. college campuses and speak with students about Israel and the Jewish people,” said Genesis Prize Foundation Co-Founder and Chairman Stan Polovets.

“At a time when the academic community and other forces are making sustained efforts to delegitimize Israel, these visits are particularly important and timely,” he added.
