Mapping Israel Education: An Overview of Trends and Issues in North America
Gilo Family Foundation, Spring 2003
In Fall 2002, the Gilo Family Foundation commissioned independent research to map the current state of the field of Israel Education. The goal of this study was to: identify the formal and informal venues in which Israel Education is provided to North American youth (ages 3-21); provide a preliminary assessment of the relative strengths and weaknesses of Israel Education as a whole; to identify gaps in the offering of Israel Education; and to formulate some preliminary recommendations that would contribute to on-going policy discussions.
The initial phase of the study included: 21 interviews by phone and in-person, a review of over 50 primary resources, and participation in two symposia devoted to the topic of Israel Education. While this investigation is by no means comprehensive, it does begin to shed light on a broad range of programs, initiatives, and on-going activities thatcomprise the field of Israel Education.
