| Betar is the world-wide Zionist youth
movement that refuses to be silent, and as our founder Ze'ev Jabotinsky wrote:
"Silence is despicable." Now, almost 100 years after its creation in 1923,
Betar USA is taking our tradition of standing up and speaking out to a whole
new level. Introducing Betar News!
Our students are
putting together informational videos plus a weekly newscast by students and
for students, but for adults as well. We will not just present news, but also
promote Israel tourism and fight the Israel boycotters by promoting great
Israeli products and technology you can use.
to one of our supports, Betar can borrow 80% of the equipment needed, including
the professional camera, professional lights, a professional video editing
computer and more. We do, however, need a few things to produce a quality
newscast. While we are borrowing more than $20,000 in equipment, we need $3,856
of our own equipment to properly launch, and we will implement the improvements
as money is donated. Right now we are using a drop-cloth as a backdrop, so our
first need is a workable backdrop and stand. We also need, in order, good light
stands so we don't trip and fall over flimsy lightweight stands with hot bulbs
(a safety issue); a pair of matching wireless microphones so two people can be
on the set at the same time; a microphone we can use overhead to ensure sound
quality; microphone storage cases to protect the investment when not in use,
two lighting wall mounts and two small lights to fill in shadows.
By our calculations, we need $3,856 to reach our
goal getting us properly started, and that includes all shipping charges. If we
are blessed by exceeding that goal, we will buy a desk for our news anchors to
sit behind, build a better set than our starter hanging banner as a backdrop,
buy our own camera and cables, plus a few other items so we can stand on our
own. Right now though, we need your help to make the basic newscasts a reality.
This new project is not yet tax deductible because we don't even have the money
for the IRS paperwork, but we need to start somewhere. Please help restart
Betar (www.Betar.org) USA.
