Explore Zionism and Israel. Uncover their complexities. Develop your own narrative.
JU Israel is not just a course about Israel. It is an exploration of Zionism and Israel through history, culture, politics, current events, and more. Students have the opportunity to examine multiple narratives, ask tough questions, engage in real conversations with their teachers and peers.
Hear what alumni have to say about the course…
I can confidently say that I have learned a tremendous amount and now have a better understanding of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
This course definitely solidified my knowledge about everything related to the conflict and made me a lot more confident in being able to discuss the issues. I feel ready to take an active role on campus next year.
Going to York University, where anti Israel sentiment is common, and where I regularly table to publicly defend Israel and show good face, the knowledge of the semantics of the Israeli arab conflict I gained thanks to JU has been hugely helpful
