We are the only Israel based Israel education team developing curricular and pedagogic frameworks for the English-speaking Jewish landscape. Easily adaptable for multiple audience – young students, travelers, educators and Jewish community professionals – we offer a diverse selection of Israel education offerings from our expert team.

Through a tour and a dynamic educational program focused on the President’s vision of Israel’s four tribes – Secular Jews, Religious Jews, Arabs and Ultra-Orthodox Jews – you will gain a deeper understanding of Israeli society. To book, please email Michael Rainsbury – michaelr@makomisrael.net.

We plan deep-dive experiences into issues such as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Israeli Arts & Culture, and the divide between the religious and secular in Israel. You are invited to learn more about our signature seminars – such as “Occupation & Homeland – Exploring Zionism, Palestinian Identity & The Conflict,” Jerusalem as a case study of the conflict,” “Good Controversy Seminar,” and “Zionism & Liberalism – can we make it work?”If you’re interested in designing a custom study experience of Israel — ranging from one to ten days, email makomisrael@jafi.org.
