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.

The Yad Vashem seminar for educators in Jewish Supplemental Programs is an eight day, June 20-28, 2017, creative program focusing on helping educators develop the skills needed to create programs and content for Shoah studies that can be used in a variety of settings and to deliver those programs in the most compelling way possible. The seminar is historically based, with interdisciplinary approaches to enable the educators to understand the Shoah in its complexity. Using the unique Yad Vashem pedagogical approach, modeled lessons, and collegial interaction, participants will be empowered to create individual Shoah Study programs tailored to their specific supplemental program. This program is highly subsidized and space is very limited.
