LET'S TALK ABOUT ISRAEL
An Immersive Israel Experience Fellowship with Moishe House
Moishe House Residents and MHWOW Hosts across the country tell us that their communities are increasingly divided: politically, economically, socially, and so on. As such, the subject of Israel tends to be a particularly difficult topic to handle. Moishe House is meant to be a space where community building can–and should–happen along these fractured lines.
So we must ask ourselves: how can we embrace complexity and rigor without shying away from the unknown or the controversial? How do we lead our peers to address subjects that we ourselves don’t completely understand? How can we articulate the issues that divide us and interact with them and each other in a way that builds community? How can we celebrate Israel without feeling we’re not woke enough? How do we dig into Israel’s pressing concerns and complexities–even those that do not involve the conflict with the Palestinians?
What is 4HQ?
The 4HQ framework serves as a template to guide meaningful conversations about Israel, even (and especially) with a divided audience. Additionally, the 4HQ framework is a way to listen to Israel conversations, break them down and, think clearly about Israel issues.
4HQ Israel Encounters is a yearlong program of webinars, in-person gatherings, 1-on-1 mentoring sessions and one weeklong trip through Israel. The aim of this program is to equip Moishe House residents and MHWOW hosts with the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to create and facilitate meaningful programs about Israel.
Throughout the year we will explore the social, historical, and political landscape of Israel from a multitude of perspectives and together we will translate those experiences into practical, real-life Moishe House programs.
