Do you ever feel that you have to be the educator on the issue of the Arab-Israeli Conflict but feel reluctant to do so, either because you feel you do not have adequate in-depth knowledge, or because you do not want to offend those who may have already have definite views? We at MEEDU try to address this problem by giving information on the views and attitudes of both sides. Most schools try to get a balanced view by inviting, separately, speakers from both sides, speakers who give their own conflicting views of historical and current events. Our approach is totally different and is unique.
We hope you’re having a fabulous summer term so far! There’s lots of work going on behind the scenes at JTA HQ.
We have been:
- representing the views of Jewish Teachers and Education professionals at the RE Council
- we’re working with Muslim and Christian teachers through the Three Faiths Forum
- and we’re doing some education and equality work with the teaching unions.
If you’d like to get involved in any of this work, at any level please email Flora on firstname.lastname@example.org
