On some college campuses the conversation around Israel is highly contentious and divisive. This series is to help you create engaged meaningful conversations around Israel and being Jewish on campus.

The Associated’s Insight Israel Forum is working with OpenDor Media -for the national release of an innovative six-part video mini-series, The Israeli-Palestinian Context, in partnership with leading Baltimore institutions, Baltimore Hillels, synagogues, Associated agencies and national youth organizations. The Insight Israel Forum is sponsoring three interactive, virtual Campus Conversations exclusively for area high school students along with their parents. 

The series features Dr. Neil Rubin, Dr. Noam Weissman, Film Producer Ariel Nishli and Julia Jassey, Co-CEO/Director of Jewish on Campus & Co-Host of the Jewish Identity Crisis PODCAST and featured in the Israeli-Palestinian Context video series in candid conversations with Baltimore’s student leaders about campus life, being Jewish and Israel.
