Utilizing ITME's unique resources and analysis, we have educated and empowered thousands of community members and leaders from diverse backgrounds, equipping them with the knowledge and tools to engage in constructive and productive dialogue about Israel. The transformative impact of our educational approach is further validated by glowing testimonials from both community members and professionals, highlighting what they have learned, the significant changes in their perspectives and sharing how ITME programming has inspired constructive conversations.

Small Sample of Feedback from Previous North American Tours

The extraordinarily successful pilot phase laid the groundwork for expansion. A series of tailored programs across North America, including Board Briefings, Community Events, and Staff and Professional Training, were scheduled for the West Coast of the United States and Canada for October and November 2023.

OCTOBER 2023 | ITME-ON-THE-ROAD GOES VIRTUAL

Following the events of October 7th, believing Avi was more valuable in Israel as an educator, at the last minute, in consultation with JCC Association of North America professional leadership, we decided to postpone the trip and focus on media outreach and virtual programming for a plethora of global organizations – the core of which was JCCs across the United States. ITME’s relationship with the JCC has expanded and flourished – especially since October 7th.

FEBRUARY – MARCH 2024 | ON THE ROAD AGAIN

In December, February, and March, we were on the road again – reaching almost a dozen states coast-to-coast and helping boards, communities, professionals & staff understand the war by gaining a deeper understanding of the evolving war. We held scores of interviews and over 40 public and private events with audiences of a range of ages and from various religious and professional backgrounds. The primary pillar of our tour was ITME-ON-THE-ROAD, our partnership with the JCC Association of North America.

MAY 2023 – APRIL 2024 | OVER 100 PROGRAMS, BOTH IN-PERSON AND ONLINE, FOR DIVERSE AUDIENCES AT OVER 30 JCCs

Since May 2023, we have worked intensively one-one-one with JCCs across North America to create customized live and virtual programming in Israel and across North America. ­Utilizing ITME’s unique briefings, tours, workshops, film screenings, resources, and analysis, we have educated, equipped, and empowered thousands of community members and leaders from a wide variety of backgrounds – Jews and non-Jews, community members, clergy of all faiths, and community and civic leaders – with the knowledge, skills, and tools that build a bridge to engage in constructive and productive dialogue about Israel. Between May 2023 and April 2024, we have organized and conducted over 100 dynamic and varied programs, both in-person and online, for dozens (over 30 JCCs) of JCCs across the United States.

The uniqueness of partnering with JCCs is the gift of leveraging their networks. Our partnership with the JCC is allowing us to reach broad and diverse audiences. Through this partnership, we are reaching tens of thousands of people – boards, business, civic and non-profit leaders, clergy, community members, educators, high school seniors, interfaith groups, Israelis, leadership, professionals, religious and secular political and educational organizations and institutions, synagogues, universities, and other influential groups that local partners determine – around the world. Testimonials from professionals and community members alike stand as a testament to our commitment and impact.

GROWING DEMAND FOR LIVE, VIRTUAL, AS WELL AS TOOLS AND RESOURCES

The pilot’s success, the popularity and impact of the virtual and live briefings during the war, and our in-person programming at JCCs across the United States in December, February, and March have led many JCCs to seek continued ITME education for their communities, staff, and professionals.

Given the continuing demand, we continue to work with JCCs across North America to develop virtual programming and resources and tools to enhance educational enrichment. Our goal is to do whatever we can within budget constraints to empower communities, staff, and professionals with a robust understanding of the Middle East, furthering knowledge, enhancing understanding, and supporting constructive community dialogue.

THE JCC ISRAEL ACADEMY

Recognizing Avi’s unique and exceptional contributions to the JCC Association of North America, Avi has earned his place as the movement’s premier educator.

In May 2024, the JCC Association of North America will be launching the Israel Academy. Avi will be the first educator of this new initiative; he will teach a six-part course called Inside the Middle East: Navigating Today’s Complexities and Tomorrow’s Possibilities.

Testimonials from professionals and community members alike stand as a testament to our commitment and impact. Avi’s presentations are universally acclaimed. His ability to articulate the nuanced reality of the Middle East and Israel’s role in regional geopolitics has been described as “outstanding.” Participants appreciate his professionalism and his adeptness at discussing Israel beyond its divisive politics. Feedback consistently highlights the value of his insights, with many expressing gratitude for his guidance through challenging and emotional topics.
