About SEE Isreal
SEE Youth - AMHSI: Alexander Muss High School In Israel: a discussion of this incredible program of study in Israel for High School students featuring a panel of students who have experienced the program. They will be talking about the program and its transformative influence on their lives. The inclusion of young people in several of the presentations is a significant part of our day's events.
SEE The People’s Army - Lone Soldiers Panel: a discussion of the phenomenon of lone solders that will include representatives from The Lone Soldier Center in memory of Michael Levin and Friends of the IDF with former lone solders attending and speaking about their experiences and its impact on their Judaism and Zionism. This is sure to be a beautiful and emotional session for attendees.
SEE Innovation - Technology and Science Panel: Several participating organizations will be presenting the work that they are doing in Israel that is impacting people in Israel and around the world. Panel will include the Israel Cancer Research Fund (they raise millions of dollars in the US each year and award grants for cancer research to Israeli researchers - an incredible story); United Hatzalah with a discussion of their technology and their life-saving emergency services both in Israel and around the world; Tikun Olam Makers who are innovators of medical and technological devices that improve the lives of the disabled.[SM1]
SEE Religious Inclusion - Religious Pluralism Panel with speakers from Masorti (Conservative), ARZA (Reform) and AJC's Jewish Religious Equality Coalition (multi-denominational, including Orthodox) discussing the pressing religious and civil rights issues affecting Israeli life today: prayer at the Kotel; the issues on Mikvah funding and use; conversions; funding for non-Orthodox organizations; how Israelis and American Jews can impact the fight. We think this will be a powerful impactful part of the event.
