Makom Israel Teachers Lounge

The Makom Israel Teachers Lounge is a weekly podcast with veteran Israel Educators Mike Unterberg and Alan Goldman, taking you behind the headlines to let you know what’s really going on in Israeli politics, news and culture.

I have been on several trips to Israel, and this was one of the most substantive, content-wise. I walked away from 4HQ feeling empowered and excited to have more conversations about Israel/Palestine. The staff were so knowledgeable and professional, and the trip looked flawless...Thank you!

This grassroots program helped create new portals of Israel and communal engagement to so many individuals and families as well as creating a new bond between Jewish Toronto’s communal institutions. These young emissaries not only inspired anew our connection to Israel, they helped us appreciate just how important is our connection to each other."

Ted Sokolsky, President and CEO, UJA-Federation of Greater Toronto
