HasbarApp is an initiative of Hatzad Hasheni, an educational group founded in 2010 during the period of the Presidency of CLAM (Maccabi world Union representative in Latin America) held by Robert Croitorescu in collaboration with leading institutions in the Hispanic world.
Our goal is to position Israel as a peace-loving state, a state that promotes the progress of humanity and that is unfairly defamed because of the misinformation promoted by anti-Semitic countries and individuals with the collaboration of some media. We aim to better prepare those of us who love Israel to make a just defense.
Currently, the program works in 18 countries, in 26 communities, in front of thousands of Spanish and Portuguese speaking people.

From his current (eliminar)position as President of CLAM-Confederación Latinoamericana Macabi and as an active member of CAIV (Confederación de Asociaciones Israelita de Venezuela) he conceived and realized the dream of forming the first organization specialized in the proactive defense of Israel in the Spanish-Portuguese world (Public Diplomacy). Hatzad Hasheni (2010) is an instrument against the delegitimization of the State of Israel, initiated for years by radical Islamist groups in association with the extreme lefin the world. “My family, my contribution to the progress of my country from my work… and the conviction that I have energetically pushed for what my people needed… is my way of being worthy of being.”

A professional journalist, educator and renowned speaker, he is trained in Political Science, International Relations, Advertising and Public Relations.

The Jewish people have more admirers and friends than we usually assume. The public diplomacy that we propose (ELIMINAR from CLAM) is an act of moral dignity and an educational work in which we must get involved”.

Rebeca and Abraham Edid (San Diego – Mexico) – “We are Mexican Jews living in the United States with our three daughters. We understand the importance of supporting projects like Hasbarapp because day by day anti-Semitism is growing by leaps and bounds around the world and it is of utmost importance to understand the facts in order to educate the new generations. We have a great love for Israel and faith in a better world.” Thank you, friends!
