Project Interchange’s Educational Approach

Israel. The very word instantly conjures headlines and images. Yet, when it comes to understanding Israel, there is no substitute for first-hand experience.  

AJC Project Interchange is unmatched in bringing global decision-makers to Israel to learn about its reality and complexity for themselves.

Government officials, university leaders, civic and religious leaders, and media elites are exposed to diverse perspectives from Israeli leaders shaping headlines, innovators driving the “Start Up Nation,” and experts who share best practices and insights on issues and challenges facing Israel and the world.

Interactions with representatives of Israel’s vibrant, multifaceted society and open dialogue with Israeli and Palestinian leaders is key to our educational approach.

Upon their return home, participants join the Project Interchange Alumni Network - 6,000 global leaders from all 50 U.S. states and 110 countries.
