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.
