Young people who wish to join the discourse about Israel too often find themselves lacking the insight and content knowledge necessary to evaluate information and challenge unsupported assumptions. The Brandeis Young Leaders Conference on Israel Studies will convene an elite group of high school students for an intensive five-day academic conference that will equip you with a critical knowledge base of history, politics, culture, and Israeli society. Gaining this fundamental knowledge is critical for student leaders who wish to participate seriously in conversations about the complexity of and challenges faced by Israel.
Student delegates will focus on the study of Israeli history, politics, culture, and society; they can expect to develop their knowledge and understanding of the modern State of Israel.
Additionally, students can look forward to gaining a unique perspective of the world of Israel Studies through experiential learning, guest lectures, and networking opportunities with the leaders and educators in the Israel Studies community.
The Conference will be held on the Brandeis University campus.
