Stories for the Sake of Argument emerged from a realization that the field of Israel education has changed. The Co-authors found that the fear of getting into an argument was obstructing real conversations about Israel.

The authors, came to believe that no deep learning can happen without healthy arguments. This seven week workshop is designed to spark disagreements about key issues facing Israel and the Jewish world. From religious freedom to identity politics, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to COVID-19, gender equality to Israel-Diaspora relations, each story tackles a different issue, sets up a powerful clash of values, and leaves you with an unresolved dilemma to discuss. We will use the book, Stories For The Sake of Argument to help guide our conversations and introduce the weekly topics for argument.

Through this workshop and the book, you’ll:
-Develop the tools to talk to people with whom you disagree
-Express and grapple with other viewpoints and voices
-Deepen your understanding of yourself, others, and Israel
