This research aims to identify the different notions of and focus on Israel as taught in the Zionist day schools in Melbourne, Australia. It seeks to establish a comparison between schools (which all define themselves as Zionist) in how they differentially engage their students with Israel. This analysis considers how Israel is conveyed in the context of the school's ideological orientation. It concludes that in order to maximize the effect of Israel education it is essential to maintain a healthy dialectical relation between the formal and informal aspects, and similarly, to hold both an ideal and a real-to-life image of Israel.
