TalkSpace Israel

TalkSpace – Creating a place on campus for meaningful conversation about Israel

Talkspace is a ten-session course developed for students and young adults. Ideal for post-birthrighters, this course digs deeper into Israel and Jewish identity. Demanding yet engaging, activities involve multi-media, discussion, and values exploration. Talkspace has already been implemented very successfully in several Hillel’s in North America.

In the contemporary scene, where Jews around the world are bound together by existential questions about the Jewish future, to what extent can the State of Israel and the Jewish communities of the Diaspora share a unified model of Jewish peoplehood?
