What we believe in:
- Presenting programs that are lively and fun, entertaining and informative; learning is an exciting, challenging and fulfilling experience
- Effective learning is an active process, we avoid frontal lectures
- We proudly support Israel and its unique situation as a Jewish Democratic State
- We have no political agenda; our aim as an educational organization is to provide information, to throw light on the issues and opinions, to characterize the parties and the players to allow participants to arrive at their own conclusions
- We don't want or expect to change people's opinions, but we would hope that after experiencing our programs that their opinion is better informed, that they come to their conclusions from a deeper appreciation of the background, the colors and textures of the issues, and a broader understanding of the consequences of different viewpoints
- We see Israel engagement as an essential part in defining and enhancing our Jewish identity.
