This January, the Bronfman Center is taking a group of student leaders to Israel, engaging a diverse community in a new environment and discussing tensions head-on.
In an effort to promote intersectionality and inclusiveness, we are facilitating the NYU Israel Experience (January 15-25, 2018) for 20-25 student leaders from all corners of NYU's landscape who are interested in seeing Israel beyond the headlines. This year-long educational seminar brings NYU student leaders together for on-campus seminars and a 10-day trip to Israel to interact meaningfully with Israeli society and history, exploring the many nuances and complexities of maintaining a Jewish and democratic state. The trip seeks to formally delve into the narratives of the people who live in Israel and Palestinian territories.
The trip will take student leaders across Israel and Palestinian territories, exploring old and new communities, and engaging with prominent authors, activists, professors, and artists. Students will learn about the unique social, political, economic, and religious aspects of life in different regions, and engage with one another in thoughtful conversation about their experiences and viewpoints. The trip seeks to grapple more meaningfully with the tensions on the ground and deliberately engage across fundamental difference.
