World Education Conference 2019

From 22-28 July, 2019, The KKL-JNF Overseas Education and Community Division brought together some 200 educators from 50 schools around the world for an enriching study tour designed to provide educators with new pedagogical tools to strengthen the younger generation’s connection to the land, people, and heritage of Israel. 

Throughout their week-long trip, principals and teachers from the USA, Canada, France, North Africa, Switzerland, and England toured Jewish and Zionist heritage sites around the country and learned about the latest innovations in ecological education. They saw the fruits of KKL-JNF’s commitment to the development of the State of Israel and its environment and communities through visits to KKL-JNF projects, many of which are supported by international Friends of the JNF. The participants experienced Israel’s diverse culture and people during visits to educational institutions, encounters with local teachers and students, and fascinating lectures and discussion groups. 
  • Day 2: Using One’s Senses to Get in Touch with Israel

    How can we best express the profound connection to Israel that every Jew feels? It appears that this can be done without recourse to words: on the third day of their visit, members of the World Education Delegation took part in enrichment workshops that focused on the senses.
