UED Collaborative Apply Now


I’ve been part of the UED Collaborative for the past two years and am consistently impressed by the breadth of perspectives and resources, and even more so, by the high-level discussion questions and activity suggestions that accompany each article and video. I’ve absolutely become a better Israel educator as a result of the Collaborative, and I look forward to joining again this year.

I have greatly benefited from my participation in the UED Collaborative. The material that is prepared and made available to us is interesting and timely, the cohort of teachers whom I have met provide real time examples of how to navigate some of the issues that the study of Israel generates, and the monthly seminar spotlights an issue and provides a forum for educating us all on how to respond to our students about issues that are of concern to them.

I use Unpacked for Educators all the time. As I developed new courses and curriculum I’ve built them around UED - the quality of the videos, articles, podcasts and resources are the perfect building blocks for learning. The Collaborative webinars have been a significant source of professional development as well as an opportunity to learn from and interact with some of my Jewish and Israeli education heroes.

UED is central to my teaching practice – from my research and planning, to my lesson execution and assessment, I have been so enriched as a teacher by the unbelievable content and support that UED offers. My students love the UED content… The UED Collaborative and webinars have added so much value to my classroom. The UED staff has shifted my entire outlook on syllabus development. I have become more skilled and excited about my teaching because of this unbelievable platform.

Unpacked's resources provide avenues to explore, study and develop that relationship without forcing one perspective over another. What I am most impressed with is that the materials are free from political bias and religious dogma. I love to learn and the professional development seminars provide current and relevant information to keep our lessons current and relevant for the students. Living in today's modern world, so much happens so quickly and Unpacked keeps up with what is happening... They really are the best of Judaism and Israel education.

The quality of the videos and supporting materials has widened the reach of our Israel education beyond just the Jewish Studies classroom. The Collaborative has been an additional and meaningful way for us to deepen our student engagement. The webinars have offered timely and sophisticated material, showing us different ways to enhance our curriculum. The ready availability of the team has been invaluable - they’ve added confidence and rigor to our work and allowed us to reach complex ideas with much greater success. UED has become a core part of our curriculum and a regular motivator.

Being part of the Unpacked Collaborative has been an invaluable resource for me. It has provided quality resources for my teachers and students, and allowed for the development of high level conversations that encourage students to deepen their love and commitment to the State of Israel and the Jewish people in ways that respect and honor differences. The Collaborative provides an opportunity for professional development that is rigorous and nourishing for those of us engaged in preparing young people for their futures - not only about Israel, but as young Jews in an ever changing and sometimes hostile global environment.
