Israel education does not just happen in the classroom formally or informally out on a tour, but it also happens through engaging online media when students are at the gym, commuting or just hanging out at home. As a response to this educational opportunity, we offer two engaging forms of online education, our podcast and weekly news update.
Makom Teachers Lounge Podcast
The Makom Israel Teachers Lounge is a weekly podcast hosted by veteran Israel Educators Mike Unterberg and Alan Goldman, taking students, alunni and the Israel enthusiast behind the headlines to tackle what’s really going on in Israeli politics, news and culture. We host Israeli and American-Jewish thought leaders, politicians, journalists and activists to give us the most up to date and powerful insight for our students, alumni and Israel enthusiasts. Previous guests on our podcast include Natan Sharansky, Daniel B. Shapiro, and Gil Troy. Since many of our students and alumni are looking for engaging Israel content when they are outside of the classroom or no longer in Israel, our podcast has been an effective tool to reach them to bring Israel to them wherever they are at.
Weekly Israel News Updates
We send out weekly news updates to 500+ students that have opted in to this weekly update from our Israel education team. This is done through Whatsapp. Here is an example of an update:
