Jewish Learning Works and the Jim Joseph Foundation recently launched basisIsraeleducation.org, a new site documenting BASIS — the Israel Education Day School project. BASIS, a four-year Israel Education initiative, was piloted in the San Francisco Bay Area. This model of Israel education provides schools techniques and tools to integrate Israel education across a school curriculum. Schools in the BASIS project successfully aligned Israel education with the school mission and embedded it at the core of their community and culture.
BASIS employs several strategies for building these connections: arts and culture, travel, twinning and more. A network of consultants, advisers and experts in specific fields work with each school to help them build an Israel education program that is woven into the fabric of the school.
Not an educator? basisIsraeleducation.org has tools for families and adult learners.
