What We're Reading

The CIE website is "an indispensable and unique resource for anyone interested in Israel and the Middle East. Balanced and fair, and giving expression to more than one voice. Extremely user friendly, and responsive to both those seeking historical knowledge as well as wishing to be up-to-date on current events. Students, scholars, journalists, politicians, community leaders - and members of the general public - will find here an authoritative, reliable and easily accessible source of knowledge, information, commentary - and wisdom."
Professor Shlomo Avineri, Jerusalem, Israel

"I have to say it was the best [educator/teacher] conference I have ever attended! The mix of history, theory/pedagogy, and tachlis tools and resources made what I learned relatively painless to incorporate in our curricula."

"The [teen] program was just awesome. I learned more in those six hours about Israel than in the past year at my private Jewish school. All of the professors and facilitators involved were enthusiastic about the lessons and eager to answer everyone's questions. I'm so glad I attended, and now that I'm aided with this new knowledge, I look forward to spreading awareness and effecting good change now and far into the future."

"After learning with CIE, I feel confident that Israel can be incorporated into most aspects of the curriculum, even with our youngest students. Using primary sources is the best way for kids to learn about facts and themes."

"What a full packed week of ISRAEL learning! It was so fulfilling and inspiring to be in the company of many dedicated ISRAEL educators, all of us seeking more knowledge and best practices to then take back with us to our communities- I for sure am filled with new ideas and approaches to effectively support the educators in our partnership."

"Who would have thought that there could be a one-stop-shop for history, analysis and primary documents about modern Israel and its place in Jewish and Middle Eastern history? We now have it! With easy navigation and creative functionality, the Center for Israel Education site is trustworthy and powerful. The CIE site should be a “favorite place” for students, scholars, the media, and educators.”
Rabbi Elliot Cosgrove, New York City
