The Israel Learning Lab (ILL) at Penn is a 10-week experiential, conversational seminar for students looking to deepen their understanding of Israel on their own terms. We want to provide a holistic background to Israel including a broad range of topics that delve into Israel and Israeli society on a deeper level. Some course topics include The Evolution of Zionism and Zionism today, What is Israel’s Identity?, and a Virtual Tour of Israel’s Borders from 1948 to Today.
ILL applicants are open-minded, thirsty to learn and require no previous knowledge about Israel. Students of all backgrounds and faiths are encouraged to apply and participants are eligible to receive a stipend upon completion of the course.
