The iCenter's work is rooted in The Aleph Bet of Israel Education, a set of core principles, approaches to content, and essential pedagogies that together constitute the building blocks for the Field of Israel Education. In addition to hardcover books, the text is available in both a PDF version and plain text online.
Through signature initiatives and community-based opportunities, The iCenter reaches educators from day schools, synagogues, camps, youth movements, college campuses, JCCs, Federations, local communities, and more.
Various professional development opportunities are described on the Initiatives page.
The Israel education resources we curate and create are designed to be learner-centered, feature the diversity of voices in Israeli life, and draw on genuine Israeli culture. Our goal is to create multiple entry points for educators to engage learners in meaningful and dynamic relationships with Israel.
