Acerca del Curso

Israel is a country that draws a lot of public attention around the globe. Nevertheless, both those who support Israel and those who are critical of its geopolitical standing and policies, usually have a very limited knowledge about the Israeli society and its political system. This course presents Israel from multiple perspectives - political, social, economic and cultural - in an attempt to expose the learners to a cutting edge academic research on the country. Each of the 13 sessions is focused on one aspect of the Israeli society. Every session starts with a general introduction of the issue at hand, hosting one expert or more, who share their most recent studies and insights on that specific field. Every 15 minutes, or so, the students are asked to answer an informative quiz of comprised of a single question. Upon the completion of each class, an online chat will be opened. Students studying for credit are expected to participate in it, ask relevant questions and answer questions about the required readings for this class. Students will graduate from this course with a better understanding of the Israeli society, better knowledge of the Israeli history, politics and economy, and better acquaintance with the varying groups of which the Israeli society is comprised....

I truly received a peek into Israeli society, from the ethos to the infrastructure, and of the culture and the history that forms it. There are a few perspectives shown throughout parts of this course, although I did not see eye to eye on some, I am grateful to listen and learn from them. I highly recommend this course.

This course is very interesting, since Israel is such a unique yet complicated country. So much so that, more than ten faculties take part in giving this course from different disciplines. Now, I know Israel better and will certainly explore more about it in the future. Peace and love to all ~

This is a great course, full of new views and perspectives regarding to the Israel Society. The readings assigned are useful and provide some new insights that are somewhat implicitly stated in the lectures.

I really enjoyed the course, and I wish one day I can visit Jerusalem in person.

O Curso é excelente. Apresenta um panorama geral do Estado de Israel e dos processos que o tornaram o que é hoje. Muito bom poder aprender com importantes professores da Universidade Hebraica de Jerusalém e suas pesquisas recentes em cada área de estudo. Curso muito recomendável.

I was listening to this course to satisfy my personal interests. I think it creates a detailed picture of the Israeli society to a person like me, now I'm a foreigner but in the future I plan to become Israeli. I especially enjoyed the last 3 lectures. Great job, thanks!

It was great to read and hear about this very interesting topic.

Positive was:

1. Information based on research.

2. Information that was both positive and critical about the state of Israel.

3. Information that leads to a better understanding of the news around Israel.

Shalom, everybody!!! Thank you all very much and God bless you all in Israel! Special thanks to Coursera for the financial support! For me as a Christian, and a participant in the Judeo-Christian dialogue, it was important to understand the details!

It was an interesting course, especially week 13. I didn't like the background on video and sometimes the quality of the video. Please, change it, it is so hard to watch this crazy blue wall for an hour and more.

Except for the last lecture on Jerusalem, I loved each and every lecture in the course. Also, the quizzes should have been a little longer, i.e. with more questions, at least 3-5 questions for each week.
