FULL PRESENTER BIOS BELOW
Born in Haifa, Yoseph Haddad is an Israeli Arab who moved with his family to Nazareth at age 3. At 18, he decided to volunteer in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and served in the Golani Brigade. In 2006, the Second Lebanon War broke out. At a battle in Bint J’bil, a Kornet missile shot by Hezbollah severely injured Yoseph, severing his leg and wounding him in multiple places on his body and face. After a long rehabilitation process, his leg was reattached and today, he can even play soccer again. On account of this fateful experience, Yoseph decided to dedicate his life to showcasing the truth about the State of Israel abroad, fighting BDS, and working to improve relations between Arabs and Jews by bridging social gaps in Israel.
He is now a renowned lecturer around the world to diverse communities, groups, and students. In 2018, to help bridge the gaps between Arabs and Jews in Israel, he founded the organization Together – Vouch for Each Other.
Emily Schrader is a journalist, lecturer, and award-winning content creator. As an American-Israeli, her work focuses on sharing real stories from the Middle East, as well as fighting various forms of bigotry in the region.
She is a regular columnist at the Jerusalem Post and the host of Headlines with the Haddads, a TV show focused on explaining the Middle East to an American audience – alongside her fiance, Yoseph Haddad.
Emily’s work in advocacy work focuses on combating antisemitism, promoting human rights, and feminism. She is renowned for her social media presence with a large following across platforms. Her lectures, which are actively sought out internationally, range from an overview of the Middle East to DEI training on antisemitism, to social media incitement and hate speech.
