Frequently Asked Questions:
Who is the program for?
This program was designed for anyone who wants an awesome, engaging, educational experience with everyday Israelis. Our activity takes place person or online, and is great for college students, synagogues, JCCs, High Schools, Federations, groups familiar with Israel, groups new to Israel, Jewish groups, non-Jewish groups, and anyone else who may be curious.
So long as we know who our audience is, we'll make sure the activity is adapted to their needs. The program is ideally suited to groups between 30-60 people.
Where does the program take place?
In person: We can come to your venue, hotel or otherwise. Alternatively, we have spaces available in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
Online: We will host the meeting on Zoom and take care of everything!
What's the goal of the program?
The goal of the program is to facilitate a meaningful, authentic, human encounter between the participants and our speakers, and to expose the participants to the cultural, ethnic, religious and political diversity of Israeli society.
We believe it's important and enriching to meet people who are different from ourselves, and we think that it's good for us, as human beings, to encounter opinions with which we may not agree, while still respecting each other and finding our common humanity.
Who are the Israelis?
Our carefully selected Israelis are young, personable and articulate, and they represent an interesting cross sector of Israeli society. They are regular individuals, chosen for their particular beliefs and community of origin. While they are excellent in front of a group, they are real people sharing their real views and opinions, not professional speakers. They have not been coached, nor been told what to say or not say.
Why these categories of Israelis?
This group represents a good cross-section of some of the important social dynamics and political/religious conflicts that Israeli society currently faces. We are happy to add other Israelis to the experience: a Holocaust survivor, a Kibbutznik, a convert to Judaism, a Bedouin, a member of a Druze village, an immigrant from the Sephardic/Oriental communities, etc.
What is the cost?
The program cost varies based on on the size of the group, whether we meet online or in person, and a number of other factors. Contact us to discuss the ideal arrangement for your group.
