Toldot Yisrael - Documenting Israel's 1948 Generation
Called by former Israeli Ambassador to the US, Michael Oren, “a project of paramount importance for Israel and its supporters worldwide,” Toldot Yisrael is a Jerusalem based nonprofit dedicated to recording and sharing the firsthand testimonies of the men and women who helped found the State of Israel. Since 2007, Toldot Yisrael has been interviewing the members of Israel’s 1948 generation in order to capture and preserve the epic story of Israel's founding before it is too late. So far, we have interviewed more than 850 of Israel's founders and recorded over 3,000 hours of powerful and unique footage. Toldot Yisrael’s aim is to conduct hundreds more – while it is still possible.

Sanhedrin Trail to Be Israel’s First Interactive Hiking Path
Israel’s first “smart” hiking trail, under construction between Tiberias and Beit Sheʽarim National Park in the Lower Galilee, will bring hikers back in history to the Second Temple period more than 2,000 years ago, when the Great Sanhedrin — the supreme Jewish authority of sages – was active in this region. Hikers will have access to an innovative augmented reality-based smartphone application that will virtually reconstruct heritage sites, integrate virtual guides for children along the route and bring to life prominent scholars such as the four rabbis mentioned in the Passover Haggadah.

Through Animation, a New Breath of Life for the Fallen
For six years, Beit Avi Chai, the Jerusalem cultural center, has been producing “A Face. The Day. A Memorial,” in what may seem like an unlikely medium, more often associated with children’s content — a compilation of animated short films made about soldiers who fell in battle, created by young, local animators.

How Can We Make Israel More Than Just a Holiday?
Author Sasha Kopp
As a teacher in Jewish early-childhood settings for over six years, I observed implementation of a wide variety of Israel curriculum. This experience inspired me to write my masters project about Israel education at a typical synagogue-based early-childhood program in Los Angeles. I interviewed 21 educators across a span of religious and ethnic backgrounds, including over a third non-Jews. Teachers were asked about their initial exposure to Israel, how they teach Israel in their classroom, and how they use Hebrew in their curriculum.

The Arab/Palestinian-Israeli Conflict: A Source of Inspiration?
I felt it was imperative to examine how students and teachers, representing the full spectrum of American Jewish life, confront controversial issues related to Israel. In my doctoral research, I had the privilege of observing the teaching and learning of controversial issues related to the Arab/Palestinian-Israeli conflict in three different American Jewish day high schools (Modern Orthodox, Conservative and Community

To Honor Slain Sons, Families Send 1000s of Purim Gifts to Diaspora
Israelis departing Ben-Gurion International Airport last week delivered 2,500 Purim gift bags to Jews around the world as part of a project in memory of Gil-ad Shaer, Naftali Fraenkel and Eyal Yifrach. The three Israeli teenage boys were kidnapped and murdered by Palestinian terrorists as they headed home from their West Bank yeshiva in June 2014. The project, The Jewish Connection, is an initiative of a non-profit organization founded by the boys’ parents to further and strengthen the international Jewish solidarity demonstrated during the weeks between the boys’ kidnapping and discovery of their bodies.

The Second International Symposium on Israel Education
The Second International Symposium on Israel Education will bring together Jewish educators and decision-makers in a position to impact significantly on how and why Israel might be integrated into the educational environments with which they are involved for four days (July 17-20, 2017) of dialogue, encounters, field trips and reflection. Its underlying rationalization is the conviction that effective Israel education means facilitating exploration into the meaning of Israel in one’s own life, enabling students to make sense of Israel for themselves in a manner that will foster a personal and enriching relationship with the Jewish state while also motivating them to engage in building the Jewish future
