Redrawing the Maps, Rethinking Education

By Hannah Weitzer

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), March 2008

In revolutionizing Israel education, the author asserts that maps that lack the green line is indicative of a gap between fact and myth that runs rampant in teaching Israel to Diaspora Jews. She argues that we must delve into the nuances of the conflict and teach a multifaceted Jewish narrative that can be truthful, loving and critical. Our ability to digest all the facts will give us a more honest relationship with Israel and a stronger basis from which to move forward towards a peaceful future.
