The Zionist Seminars of the Jewish Agency's Education Department is a unique program that combines informal Jewish-Zionist education within the formal settings of schools and other institutions.
Our Shlichim come from Israel to your school and work closely with communities around the world to bring Israel closer to you!
Topics of our programs include Jewish identity, conemparary issues in the Israeli society today, challenges in being Jewish and Zionist in a changing world, Israel advocacy, Israel/Diaspora relations and many more.
We offer short and long term programs.
Short Term Programs
In our short term programs we work within a focus group in the school or community, running an array of sessions focusing on a specific topic, hence allowing an educational process to develop during and after the Shlichim's stay in the school.
These programs can come to compliment any Jewish Studies curriculum, a pre/post Israel Tour or even an educational theme scheduled by the school for that week.
In our PROGRAMME CATALOGUE you may view samples of the seminars and sessions that we offer.
Long Term Programs
Our long term programs allow more intensive involvement with high school pupils. This six-to-eight week period typically consists with three to seven day long seminar. During these seminars we run an educational process with the participants and explore there Jewish Identity, connection to Israel and the Jewish people, and much more.
These seminars are currently taking place in various schools in Australia and South Africa.
All programs are led by experienced, charismatic young Israelis between the ages 21 and 28, who are trained informal educators and are experts in making Zionism and Judaism interesting and relevant to their audience.
