Insight Israel

Launched in 2019, the The Associated’s Insight Israel Forum is an innovative initiative that educates Baltimorians about the complex issues of the Jewish State while encouraging candid discussion, education and ongoing reflection.  Considering diverse viewpoints and awareness of nuance related to Israel and Jewish peoplehood, this effort promotes respect and civil discourse via educational programs led by high-profile scholars, facilitators and world class practitioners, in person and virtually.  Community leaders travel on journeys of exploration as they analyze tectonic shifts in the arenas of geopolitics, religion, social services, economics and philanthropy affecting Israel.

The Insight Israel Forum is excited to partner with the Jewish Community Centers of Baltimore to inspire a continuum of information, education, dialogue and experiential opportunities connecting our community and Israel.
