Following the Hamas terrorist attack on Israel, the unprecedented rise in antisemitism around the world, and the polarizing discourse on campus and on social media, educational programming about the history of Israel and the current conflict is more important than ever before. 

The Hillel Teach-in Tour features a diverse group of experts, educators, and thought leaders offering varying perspectives on the conflict, including U.S. Ambassador and Georgetown professor Dennis Ross, former Palestinian negotiator Ghaith al-Omari, and former U.S. State Department senior advisor and Johns Hopkins professor David Makovsky.
