By Ezra Kopelowitz, Minna Wolf, Stephen Markowitz

Makom: Renewing Israel Engagement, November 2009

This report provides an analysis of the institutional and communal frameworks that enable the Israel experience to take place, focusing on the implications of significant institutional and community-level changes that have occurred in Israel programs aimed at high school youth in the United States since the 1980s. The report then provides a conceptual framework and basic data for the purpose of strategic decision-making, as well as policy recommendations to maximize the benefits of the Israel experience. The report concludes that the systematic development of local donors, local and national organizers, and program providers will produce major benefits for the Israel experience and for the community development of American Jewry.
