The Brandeis Touch
The Faculty Engagement Program on Israel is an offshoot of the Schusterman Center's decade-long and successful Summer Institute for Israel Studies.

The Summer Institute has prepared faculty at nearly 200 universities to teach courses they have developed on the modern State of Israel. The Schusterman Center has gone on to create shorter such programs, geared to specific audiences; from short-term institutes in China and India, to continuing professional education opportunities for secondary school educators. 

The Schusterman Center makes available to you our online Israel Studies resource site for quick access to websites, databases and archives that reference the modern State of Israel.
