Israel High

Israel High Leadership Program

The CJE seeks to prepare high school students for the anti-semitism and anti-Israel sentiment that is likely to confront them on their college campuses. By drawing on the most effective international organizations that train students and informal educators, we will ensure that Baltimore’s students have a strong sense of Jewish identity, have the tools and resources to feel confident and proud, and have educators and professionals who are trained to support them in their journeys to college.

The project goals:

•Strengthen students’ knowledge and comfort with Israel and its place in their own identities

•Provide high school students with tools to handle what they might face on college campuses

•Have  a select group of five high school student leaders from independent schools participate in AIPAC’s Policy Conference in Washington, DC. This Conference will provide students with the tools they need to become Israel Advocates and help other students in their high schools gain knowledge and information.

The Program:

1.Participate in 6 sessions/year (dates TBD) facilitated local educators with materials and support from international organizations such as Stand With Us, Makom, Emory University’s Center for Israel Education (CIE), AIPAC and JerusalemOnline University.
