As educators, we are continually challenged to come up with new and stimulating lessons for our classrooms. Our students are constantly looking to receive information that intrigues and informs. We at CILR invite you to take part in a twopart webinar which will provide you with a new perspective on issues of the middle east conflict. The webinar will explore easy to understand lesson plans, based on those developed by Yehudit Shier Weisberg, that can be used as a unit of study to discuss all aspects of the land of Israel based on the 1922 League of Nations’ Mandate for Palestine and the work of Salomon Benzimra. Mr. Benzimra, author of The Jewish People’s Rights to the Land of Israel which serves as the main text for the unit, traces the path leading to modern day Israel in a comprehensive and comprehensible way. The lesson plans and a teacher’s guide will be provided to participants of the webinar, free of charge. This unit of study offers a unique perspective on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as it looks at issues through the lens of logic rather than politics or religion. These lessons can easily be incorporated into units discussing subjects such as: Law, History, Civics, debate, ethics, and many more. The lessons are easily connected to many different curriculum requirements in many different subject areas. Whether an educator or simply an interested party, all are welcome.
