Peoplehood Education & Initiatives in Israel

Monday, March 08, 2021, 12:00pm – 1:15pm EST

12-1:15pm ET/ 9-10:15am PT/19:00-20:15 Israel

While Israel has long been a central component of Jewish education worldwide, Israeli Jews haven't always been encouraged to learn about their Jewish brothers and sisters in the Diaspora.

The need for peoplehood education and initiatives that build mutual understanding between the Jewish communities in and outside of Israel, is more and more apparent.

Many have already responded to this issue in the form of philanthropic investments, initiatives, and organizations. The need to invest in this field is also felt strongly by the Israeli government, which has allocated resources and budgets to this issue and seeks to consult with diaspora partners. The pioneers in this field have planted strong roots, and the impact of their activities is already being felt. 

This roundtable conversation will bring together funders already active in peoplehood education in Israel with others who are interested in the field, to share their work and vision for the future. 

The conversation will be hosted by JFN in conjunction with Israel's Ministry of Diaspora Affairs.
