Counselor Resources

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
(Available both virtual and in-person) 

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 
(A virtual program) 

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 
(Available both virtual and in-person)   

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.

Israel, You Should Try It

PATH B

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

Israel in the Cabin
(An in-person program)
   

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 
(Available both virtual and in-person)   

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
(Available both virtual and in-person)

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.

Israel, You Should Try It

PATH C

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

Israel: Tiny Country, Huge Contributions
(Available both virtual and in-person)  

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
(Available both virtual and in-person)   

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.

Hollywood in the Holy Land
(A virtual program)

Israel has taken center stage in Hollywood for decades, not only as a narrative in films and television shows but also due too many celebrity figures’ support. We discuss the history of Hollywood's support of Israel and how celebrities can affect public opinion about Israel.
