The Center for Israel Education’s (CIE) engagement with Jewish pre-collegiate teachers is hosting its fourth Teen Israel Leadership Institute (TILI) in November, with others in the months ahead. In partnership with Emory University Institute for the Study for Modern Israel, TILI will run over two Sundays, Nov. 8 and 15, from 1 to 4 p.m. ET. Applications from teens across the country are welcome. Space limited.
The interactive online sessions offer Jewish 10th- to 12th-graders activities and experiences that deepen their knowledge about Israel’s place in Jewish history and enable them to answer how Jews sought, made and are sustaining a state. Topics include Israel’s changing borders, the connection between Jewish identity and Israel, Israel in the media, Israeli culture and politics, and what to expect about Israel on college campuses. Following the institute, each participant is asked to deliver an Israel learning program for a community, synagogue, school or youth group.
Applications are due Oct. 25. Fee is $54. Students who complete the program earn the CIE Teen Israel Leadership Institute Certificate in Israel Education.
