In Search of Peace and Security:
A National Teach-In
Thank you for being a part of this teach-in, a program designed to
engage Jewish students on campus in an open discussion and debate on
the critical issues facing Israel today.
The objectives of this teach-in are twofold. One is to provide students
with the historical context to today's violence in Israel and an opportunity
discuss the key issues being debated in Israel today. The second is
to provide students with an opportunity to engage in conversations that
encompass a plurality of views and opinions on what support for Israel
means. This teach-in should help set the stage for further opportunities
for Jewish students from across the political divide to share and learn
with each other.
The teach-in is a project of Seeking Peace, Pursuing Justice, a program
of the UAHC dedicated to educating the North American Jewish community
around issues Israel faces in her pursuit of peace, security, and social
This material is adapted from the UAHC National
Teach-in on Israel.
Introduction to the Materials:
This packet is laid out to help you run the teach-in on your college
campus. The program materials have been designed for use in a range
of settings and a variety of formats. Both large and small groups will
find these materials useful. Some parts of the program will work more
naturally with one large group; others will work better with smaller
groups. We've included a number of suggestions for you to choose from.
It is up to you as an organizer of this teach-in to pick and choose
which models work best for your college campus.
