Today was the last day of classes before exams. Good luck, students! We were recalling a wonderful visit recently by a delegation of Israeli teens from a number of Jewish and Palestinian communities in Israel. The teens met in a lively discussion with students and faculty at AU, organized by Jewish and Israel Studies Professor Lauren Strauss. The teens have been engaged for several months in a writing project about their identities and were hosted in DC by Heart of a Nation.

Gorgeous day yesterday for our last spring Israeli politics discussion with SIS Professor Guy Ziv over falafel. Thanks to all who participated (some shown here) all year. These biweekly dialogue conversations covered issues such as the future of Israeli democracy, the judicial overhaul protests prior to Oct. 7, US-Israel relations, the trajectory of the Gaza War, and of course Iran’s recent attack on Israel. Not a quiet news year but lots of thoughtful discussion. Thank you Professor Ziv.
