The Jewish Education Project has curated a collection of resources on the May 2021 Israeli-Palestinian crisis. 

Please Note:  The resources that we offer on the Portal are ones that we believe will directly benefit educators.  This collection also offers broader resources to support your understanding of this complex topic.  Our goal is to strike balance when offering conflicting pieces.

A list of all Israel Education resources, including those of our Resource Partners, is available here.
