This edition of INSIDE THE CONVERSATION focuses on the critical work of our Israel Education faculty research group. How do we foster strong identification with Medinat Yisrael while simultaneously teaching history critically and comprehensively?  Ms. Adina Shoulson, SAR High School History Department Chair, and Dr. Laura Shaw Frank, AJC Director of Contemporary Jewish Life and former Director of Israel Guidance at SAR High School, explore this question from a number of perspectives.
