Israel 101 Class
Israel 101 is Hillel at the University of Vermont's introduction to Israel course, where we will explore the very basics of Israel, Judaism, Palestine, and dive into the culture, conflict, and different narratives. The purpose of this 8 class course is to educate UVM students about Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, shining an intentional light on the basics required to start understanding the complexities surrounding Israel, Palestine, the conflict, and the cultures.
This selective class seeks students who are greatly motivated to gain a deeper understanding of Israel, particularly those with minimal background knowledge who are looking to learn more. Throughout the classes, participants will be expected to engage with multi-media sources and a wide variety of perspectives, while asking questions, engaging in group discussions, and partaking in written and verbal reflections.
We will be meeting Wednesday nights, 7:30-9:00 at the Hillel Center, and dinner with be catered from a variety of local restaurants.
Class participants will form a learning community to further one another's understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing Israel and Palestine. All participants will be required to participate in the classes - which will take place every Wednesday night beginning March 6th.
We will provide all necessary materials, and after-class work will be minimal.
