StandWithUs is an international education organization, founded in 2001, to ensure that Israel's side of the story is told in communities, campuses, libraries, the media and churches through brochures, speakers, conferences, missions to Israel, and thousands of pages of Internet resources. The MFF is the sole sponsor (in perpetuity) of StandWithUs International Student Conference. The annual commitment allows on average, 160 pro-Israel student leaders from campuses all over the world to come together and enhance their skills and knowledge to be more capable leaders on their campuses and in their communities. Conference experts are brought in to teach the students speech skills, history, and the dangers of radical Islam. Students are given films and printed materials to take back to their campuses and are mentored by StandWithUs after they finish the conference. Previous speakers included Judea Pearl, Gary Wexler, Neil Lazarus, Itamar Marcus, Khaled Abu Toameh, Jeffrey Helmrich, Micah Halpern, Ishmeal Khaldi, and Roberta Seid.
