Passionate about reading about Israel?

We build a program with you, recommend books, provide a reading guide and in Israel Seminars' discussion program we will open a unique conversation with your audience.



Israel Seminars will:

· Give you advice about the choice of book for your audience

· Provide a reading guide specially created for your group

· Arrange to order and ship the books to you

· Facilitate an interactive discussion highlighting important issues in Israeli history, politics, society or culture relevant to your book choice

Do you have a group with a passion for reading about Israel?

Would you like to start a more nuanced conversation?

We can build a program with you, recommend books about Israel or books by Israeli authors with English translations.

We can provide a reading guide and give everyone ample time to read the book.

In the Israel Seminars guided discussion program we will open a unique conversation with your audience about your chosen book, sharing impressions and ideas, a different angle, a new perspective on Israeli society.

So whether you want to read about historical events like in Israeli Ambassador Michael B. Oren's book "Six Days of War" or Gershom Gorenberg's "The Accidental Empire";
or discuss a novel by an Israeli author such as Amos Oz, David Grossman, Etgar Keret or Orly Castel-Bloom;
or perhaps a Palestinian writer like Sayed Kashua
or start a conversation about something more quirky and provocative like Mark Thomas's "Extreme Rambling"
– get in touch with Israel Seminars.

This could be an unforgettable program for an Israeli cultural event, the focus of a communal brunch, a men's club or sisterhood program, or the highlight of a campus Israel happening.

Contact us now and choose your book today.

This program is suitable for:

Book lovers in synagogue and community-wide audiences, JCC’s, JCRC’s, Israel action committees, Hillel and college student groups, 11-12th grade students at high schools or supplementary schools (religious schools etc.).
