Recognizing that communal dialogue about Israel is often challenging, this guide aims to help congregations facilitate open and honest conversations about Israel. The guide addresses the kinds of issues and concerns that make these conversations challenging and provides suggestions for how to overcome some of these issues.
This page highlights some creative approaches to Israel education. The title of each guideline ends in "-ate." This is an English approximation of the Hebrew word "et," that means "time", a concept emphasized in the piece's opening quote from Kohelet. The assumption behind these guidelines is that "taking the time to make it real" can pay off in more compelling Israel educational programming.
