Israel Education: Webinars


 #1: MAKING SENSE OF THE PLAN | recorded 02.11.20

The US “Peace to Prosperity” plan is a big deal.  Unpack it, get some clarity and walk away with possibilities for your teaching. Dr. Sara Hirschhorn of Northwestern University, an expert on Diaspora-Israel relations, the Arab-Israeli conflict, and Israeli ultra-nationalist movement, and Dr. Noam Weissman, Senior VP at OpenDor Media (formerly Jerusalem U), explore the ins and outs of the US proposed peace plan and explore practical implications in Jewish education settings. 



#2: What Now for Israel Education After the Elections? | recorded 11.13.19

After Israel has chosen, we as Israel educators will need to consider our approach both professionally and personally, if any of the outcomes of Israel’s elections are different from our opinions or values, or those of the schools where we teach. Join academic expert Dr. Linda Maizels and Israel educator, writer, and performer Robbie Gringas, as we explore how our educational approach of "hugging and wrestling" applies in a post-election Israel.
