Israel, Me, and More

PATH A

 Counselors gain confidence in discussing Israel by exploring their individual Israel narratives and traveling through history using maps and viewpoints of different cultures.

Strengthening Your Israel Narrative
 

Counselors gain confidence in discussing Israel by examining aspects of storytelling, exploring their individual Israel narratives, and sharing them with their friends, campers, and colleagues.

Pieces of the Israeli Puzzle 
 

Participants will journey through the richness of Israel’s society and the unique people who add to its culture. We will challenge some of the things we've heard about what life in Israel is like and challenge some of our ideas of who makes up Israeli society.

Same Time, Same Place, Different Narratives 
 

Israel’s history can be viewed through the prisms of different cultures. Through role-playing and theater games, counselors examine different perspectives on events, both current and historic.

 Counselors are equipped with imaginative games, educational tools, and other resources to develop meaningful and enjoyable Israel-related activities.

Israel in the Bunk
 

Whether it’s a rainy-day fill-in or a response to a conversation that has just come up, we equipped counselors with a variety of simple programs on Israel-related subjects.   

How to Recognize Antisemitism 
 

Not all criticism of Israel is antisemitism; however, some is. Counselors learn to recognize the hallmarks of antisemitism and identify when antisemitism is disguised as criticism of Israel. 

Israeli Politics Without the Politics
 

Israeli election processes can be confusing. This activity dives into the complicated process of coalition-building in Israel through a game that says a lot about candy and not one word about politics.

PATH C

 Counselors explore the multiple facets of Israel-engagement and Israel’s contribution to the world.

Israel: Tiny Country, Huge Contributions
 

Counselors learn about Israel’s humanitarian aid efforts and social justice initiatives. Playing a “survival” game using only items that have been invented by Israeli companies, participants gain first-hand understanding of how Israeli ingenuity helps people around the world.  

Sustainable Future
 

Counselors discuss effective solutions to a more sustainable future offered by Israeli innovations. Using a set of games and experiments we’ll examine global challenges and some of the advanced solutions developed to address them.

What's in a Melting Pot?

The Jewish communities of the Middle East and North Africa have developed a wealth of traditions passed through generations. We invite participants to journey through the rich history of the Mizrahi and Sephardic cultures as we explore them using all five senses.
