In the era of 24/7 media coverage, internet, facebook and twitter – breaking news and news items are constantly updated. This program was created by public demand to address Israel's very dynamic news status.
Israel Seminars programs examine the important issues on Israel's agenda - and this program allows us to look at topics in the headlines right now.

“I loved the non-political dimension: It was pro-Israel but taught from an international Relations/History perspective which was far more engaging than the usual Hasbara stuff”
