Inside Israel

How do you develop a deep, nuanced, and personal connection to Israel—a connection that can be cultivated from the comforts of your own school?

The Lookstein Center’s BRAND NEW project Inside Israel, is designed to ignite a lifelong connection to and love of Israel. 

Inside Israel provides schools with FREE resource packs throughout the year. Each resource pack, based on a new theme, is complete with engaging learning opportunities, dynamic activities, and immersive experiences to help 7th-10th grade students foster their own informed connection to Israel.

Students will explore questions like what are the ethics of Israeli farming, biotesting, and agricultural trade? They’ll enjoy experiences from the comforts of their own classroom like the sights, smells, and sounds of Jerusalem on erev shabbat. They’ll explore complex topics like the political, social, and cultural implications of Israeli military service. 

Educators who participate in this program will get access to free resources and valuable support to guide their students to a nuanced and personal connection to Israel.

The Fine Print
✡ This is not an Israeli History curriculum. It is not an Israel Advocacy curriculum. It does not cover the current Israel-Hamas War. Inside Israel looks at a wide range of topics from multiple angles, to get get students involved with, connected to, and excited about Israel!

✡ This can be in the context of a classroom setting or in an informal club setting or an afterschool program. Each school will designate a space for the program.

✡ Facilitators should be available to run student facing sessions at least once per month (either in clubs or in the classroom). 

Sample Topics:

✡ Agricultural and Environmental Sustainability
✡ Democracy
✡ Diversity/Kibbutz Galuyot
✡ Hebrew Language and Culture
✡ Innovation

✡ Israel’s Global Connections
✡ Military Service
✡ The Five Senses of Israel
