Our History CIE was founded in July 2008 as an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit and tax-exempt entity. CIE operates under the direction of Dr. Kenneth W. Stein and a Board of Trustees. CIE’s work is funded by individual donations and private foundations.
Located in Atlanta, GA, CIE inherited the outreach work of the Emory Institute for the Study of Modern Israel (ISMI). That outreach work included conducting Israel-centric workshops focused on the history, politics, and society of modern Israel.
CIE has become the premier source destination for reliable content about modern Israel. CIE’s robust website provides informed access through multiple innovative learning platforms to curriculum materials, online courses, workshops, source compilations, webinars, and curated readings.
CIE’s work is sustained by private donations and foundation grants. We encourage your support of CIE’s work.
