Israel…It’s Complicated

How do we celebrate Israel’s place in the world – its innovation, its food, its entertainment – while still navigating the complexities? The first of its kind, Israel…It’s Complicated was developed in close consultation with today’s top Israel educators to provide both an overview of the Jewish historical connection to the land and a portrait of today’s modern Israeli culture. This text, through primary documents, real quotes from real people, vivid contemporary photos, and relevant activities, also embraces the intricacies while leaving learners with a deep understanding of the unique, multifaceted place that is Israel today.
