Teen Israel Leadership Institute

Program from CIE (Center for Israel Education) 


Israel education for Jewish teens is a vital piece of the work we do at the Center for Israel Education (CIE), understanding that, regardless of politics, Israel is intrinsic to Jewish and non-Jewish identities. The CIE Teen Israeli Leadership Institute connects high school students with content and context to build individual capacities to learn, belong and own Israel’s story.
