Support For Classroom Discussion on the Hamas-Israel War


The Institute for Curriculum Services (ICS) is dedicated to supporting instruction and students’ learning on topics related to Jews, Judaism, and Jewish history, including the Arab-Israeli conflict.

For many students and educators, the scale and violence of the Hamas attack on Israel on October 7, 2023 and the events that have unfolded since, have evoked many different thoughts and emotions. ICS created this resource to provide educators with tools to help facilitate conversations they may be called to have now. You will find resources on the following:

●    ICS’s “Teaching the History of the Arab-Israeli Conflict Using Primary Sources” curriculum
●    Guiding discussions on difficult topics
●    Making sense of the news and social media (including avoiding misinformation and awareness of harmful mental health impacts).
