Israel edu­ca­tion has been tak­ing on an increas­ing high pro­file in the Jew­ish com­mu­ni­ty. But is it effec­tive? Can old mes­sages speak to a new gen­er­a­tion? Or is a new approach called for?

Lov­ing the Real Israel draws from the writ­ings of Jew­ish philoso­phers, edu­ca­tion­al the­o­rists, and Bible schol­ars to offer prin­ci­ples for a new lib­er­al Zion­ist engage­ment. Lov­ing the Real Israel pro­vides guid­ance for edu­ca­tors in con­struct­ing mean­ing­ful Israel edu­ca­tion­al expe­ri­ences, as well as for lib­er­al Zion­ists who want to dis­cuss Israel issues with their friends, fam­i­ly, and community.
