Hollywood icon Michael Douglas and former political prisoner and Jewish Agency chairman Natan Sharansky will do a joint tour at three American university campuses to talk about Israel and anti-Semitism, the Genesis Prize Foundation said.

They are scheduled to appear at Brown University on January 28, Stanford University on February 2, and the University of California at Santa Barbara on February 3.

“At a time when the new and old forms of anti-Semitism are coming together to undermine Israel’s legitimacy and drive Jews apart from their Jewish identities and from one another, it is crucial that we emphasize the connection between our devotion to human rights, our commitment to peace, and our dedication to strengthening the unity of the Jewish people,” Sharansky said.
