JU Israel is an Israel education course designed for Jewish gap year students in Israel. Our goal is to foster a greater understanding of the Zionist narrative, the State of Israel, and its challenges in the 21st century. Other goals include enabling students to feel confident discussing Israel, encountering perspective about Israel that differ from their own, and articulating an informed Zionist perspective. We also aim to improve students' media literacy and identify the complexities of modern media in general, and on college campuses specifically.
