This episode of the Grand Conversation Podcast, Israel @ 75, is devoted to a wide-ranging discussion of Israel education at SAR HS, featuring: Rabbi Tully Harcsztark, Principal of SAR HS and Dean Of Machon Siach; Ms. Rebecca Wolf, Coordinator of Israel Education and History faculty at SAR HS; and Mr. Yossi Ben-Harush, an Israeli educator who has been at SAR HS for the past two years teaching gemara, ivrit and Modern Israel. Our guests discuss several important questions about Israel Education at SAR HS, including: How has our approach to teaching Modern Israel evolved over the years? How do we navigate critical discussions of Israel current events in our history classrooms? How do we educate our students to participate in difficult discussions about Israel as insiders? What role does advocacy play in Israel education?
