Creating a place on campus for meaningful conversation about Israel…
talkspace: Israel is a ten-week Israel discussion forum that encourages participants to think deeply about Israel and its relationship to Jewish identity by exploring a range of sources in interactive ways. The program seeks to inform students’ passions about Israel by creating the opportunity for meaningful and thoughtful conversation.
“Israel As We See It” is a facilitated, intimate conversation for groups of approximately 10 students that has been created to address issues raised by the situation in Gaza.
