Campaign Posters 101: A 3-Part Course On Understanding And Teaching The Israeli Elections With The National Library Of Israel

Election day in Israel is quickly approaching. But do our students really understand the process? How are members of the Knesset elected? What issues are discussed during the election campaign? What methods are used to convince the Israeli public? The National Library of Israel (NLI) houses vast collections of primary sources that depict almost every domain of life in Israel and in the Jewish world, including a collection of election posters since the establishment of the State of Israel (and before).

The Lookstein Center invites you to a 3-part mini course with the National Library of Israel that will explores topics related to the elections and Israeli politics together with learning skills that can be promoted through the use of primary sources.

General Tuition: $30; Special Rate for European Educators: $15
