Education Consultancy

Programs and Services


The foundation has accumulated significant experience over the years, working with communities and organizations both inside and outside Israel in curriculum development and teacher training, especially in the area of Israel engagement and Israel education.


For example:

  • Creating and presenting a teacher training course on ''teaching Israel'' for the Jewish Agency project MAKOM-Israel Engagement Network.
  • Creating an ''Israel Strand'' for the Chai Curriculum of the Union for Reform Judaism.
  • Short Galilean modules or full in-service tours of Israel for Diaspora Jewish educators.
  • Evaluation research and curriculum development for the Melton Centre for Jewish Education at the Hebrew University.
  • Lectures, workshops, in-service sessions for leaders and educators, in Israel or in North American communities

We would be happy to apply this experience and expertise for the benefit of your organization or community.   Please contact us for more information.

Curriculum units for Bialik College

The curriculum we prepared for Bialik College in Melbourne, Australia, focusing on Judaism and the Environment was converted into a book, Our Place in the Universe, and accompanying lesson plan manual, published by Berman House. You can read more about the approach we took here.

We continued our work for the school, producing a set of curriculum units on Jewish Holidays. Here's the feedback we got on the unit for Sukkot:

''The materials are rich, inspiring and engaging – as ever. What you have done with the themes is wonderful, really exploring and enlarging upon them. The resources are great and the suggested activities diverse and interesting''.

BBYO Summer Institute

Two years running we partnered with Shdemot at Oranim College to plan and facilitate a summer seminar for the BBYO Professional Development Institute, a project of Boston Hebrew College. One of the participants published an essay in the Forward, describing her experience. We think it nicely states our philosophy of Israel education. To read it, click here.
