Using primary sources, our mission is to educate broadly about modern Israel.

Tel Aviv

The Center has four primary goals:

  • Promote the ongoing concept that Israel is an integral and essential part of modern Jewish history.
  • Provide students, educators, and life-long learners with materials and trustworthy sources to engage with others about modern Israel.
  • Train students and adults to become literate in the study of modern Israel by understanding the concepts of state-seeking, state-making, and state-keeping.
  • Build digital resources through our robust website, conduct in-person consultations and workshops, webinars and on-line learning opportunities.

Target Audiences:

Our high-touch focus is on teens, college students, summer camp staff, Jewish and non-Jewish educators and clergy, and the media.
Through our website we serve everyone who is interested in learning more about modern Israel.

Staff:

CIE employs staff and consultants with extensive skills and experience in Israel education and non-profit businesses.

Governance:

CIE is governed through by-laws and a national Board of Trustees representing a wide-range of professions and lay-leadership guidance.
