Sending a child to college next year? Getting ready for life on campus takes a lot more than a trip to Bed, Bath & Beyond. The conversation about Israel and the Middle East can get pretty heated, and it can present a challenge to long-held ideas and ideologies.

Know Before You Go is a virtual workshop that will introduce parents to the challenges students face today and provide tips for students on how to create engaged and meaningful dialogue about Israel and being Jewish on campus, inside and outside classes.

Join Dr. Noam Weissman of OpenDor Media, as he unpacks the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and Israel’s history in a nuanced, balanced way.

Dr. Weissman is executive vice-president of OpenDor Media, where he spearheads educational vision and leads content creation on his Unpacked YouTube channel, which has more than 100,000 subscribers and millions of views. He is also the host of the podcasts Unpacking Israeli History and The Power of.

Presented in partnership with OpenDor Media.
