Israel, a small nation, is often the center of the world’s attention and frequently a topic of contention.
Discussions about Israel almost always are short on facts and devoid of nuance. Coverage of Israel in both friendly and unfriendly circles is superficial. It rarely offers an historical perspective, or captures the diversity of opinions, or provides insight into its complexity. Access to these crucial perspectives and insights is hard to find online, in print or elsewhere.
Access Israel is a nonprofit, interactive, internet-based learning center founded specifically to fill this gap. Its mission is to inform and educate about Israel on a meaningful level.
The website uses interviews with prominent experts in their fields as well as ordinary Israelis sharing their experiences, to provide differing and deeper understandings of Israel.
The website provides an interactive section where visitors’ questions are answered via podcasts and simulations, along with a resource center that includes a library of rich content that showcases Israeli culture, history, economics, sports and more.
Access Israel was founded by two senior Israel Educators who have dedicated their lives to bringing people into the Israel story. Our goal is to continue this endeavor to an ever-increasing audience.
Access Israel will distribute its content through this website, social media and partnerships with other content platforms such as educational centers.
We are dedicated to bringing our visitors beyond the superficial to explore the multifaceted aspects of the myriad of issues that face Israelis and Israel.
