The Israeli-Palestinian Context series tackles the toughest, most confusing questions people ask about Israel, its history and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. By examining and reflecting upon the most controversial aspects of Israel’s story and the most provocative claims against Israel, this series asks the tough questions and provides clarity to transform superficial opinions into nuanced and textured understandings that leave hope for a better future for all sides.
For high school students, campus groups and youth programs, the six-part series helps create a framework for creating and maintaining a connection to Israel and a confidence in one’s Jewish identity in environments which can sometimes make that difficult.
The following resource pack contains programming activities, discussion questions and reflection questions to encourage discussion and further study.
Each video is accompanied by educational resources to further engage students on each of the complex issues, with nuance and context they won’t find in news headlines or political rhetoric.
