Pioneering Identity Field Workshop Launched
On May 1, the Center for the Study of Contemporary European Jewry at Tel Aviv University launched its pioneering Identity Workshop, in which international students explore Israeli and Jewish histories and realities through field trips across the country.
The program is attended by 25 international students from diverse academic disciplines and countries, including India, Peru, South Sudan, Italy, Poland, Britain, Ethiopia, Mexico, South Korea, the United States, Argentina, Kenya, Slovakia, Canada, Germany, and Guatemala.
The first field trip included a guided visit to the Ghetto Fighters Museum in Northern Israel followed by a discussion of the socio-historical roots of Nazi barbarism; a meeting with the Christian-Aramean community in Gush Halav, in which its quest for recognition was debated; and a visit to the Sea of Galilee. More exciting and informative field trips and discussions will follow.
