Understanding Israel

A multimedia presentation for religious, civic, educational and community organizations. 

The "Understanding Israel" multimedia presentation was developed by the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) to offer audiences the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the State of Israel and the Middle East. 


The presentation can be tailored to meet the needs of specific audiences and we always strive to work within the time allocated which can range between 45 and 90 minutes. 


The program is free of charge and is available for groups between 1-1,000.
