Conversations on Zionism 2.0

Educational Series

Converso Israel Connection

Jewish National Fund-USA is proud to keep the Zionism conversation going by offering a series of online classes provided by our many partners. Together, we are looking to educate, engage, and dialogue to deepen the understanding and inspiration of Zionism. Please join in for any or all of the following classes. Additional classes will be added regularly so check back for more opportunities.

Offered by @Israel with Akiva Gersh


"From Dream to Reality to Global Leader: Israel's Inspiring Story" is a series of 4 classes that will strengthen and deepen your understanding of the story of Israel's establishment, survival, and great success.


You will learn about the early roots of Zionism, the political process that led to Israel’s creation, Israel's security challenges, immigration to Israel in its early years, the role of the IDF in Israeli society, and the birth and global impact of Israel's powerful innovation culture.


You will also explore Israel's unique culture and society (food, language, music, etc.) that is the direct result of Jews returning to Israel from the four corners of the Earth creating the first independent Jewish national home in over 2,000 years.


All this in just four classes! Look forward to seeing you in class!

Sundays at 11 a.m. ET – March 12, 19, 26 and April 2
