How do educators from differing pedagogical orientations learn, undertake, and ultimately improve the work of teaching Israel? In this conversation, “Teaching Israel: Studies of Pedagogy from the Field” editors Sivan Zakai and Matt Reingold will discuss the complex issues facing those who teach about Israel, along with respondents Lisa Grant (Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion) and Alex Pomson (Rosov Consulting), and moderator Sharon Feiman-Nemser (Brandeis University).

Sivan Zakai is Sara S. Lee Associate Professor of Jewish Education at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, Los Angeles. She directs the Children’s Learning About Israel Project and co-directs Project ORLIE: Research and Leadership in Israel Education. She received a National Jewish Book Award in 2022 for “My Second Favorite Country: How American Jewish Children Think About Israel.”

Matt Reingold teaches and is the co-head of the Jewish History Department at TanenbaumCHAT in Toronto, Canada. He is the author of “Gender and Sexuality in Israeli Graphic Novels: Contested Masculinity and Independent Femininity,” “Reenvisioning Israel Through Political Cartoons,” and “The Comics of Asaf Hanuka: Telling Particular and Universal Stories.”

“Teaching Israel” is available for purchase and published in the Mandel-Brandeis Series in Jewish Education by Brandeis University Press.

This virtual event is offered by the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Studies in Jewish Education at Brandeis University as we discuss new books published in the field of Jewish education.
