My name is Adi Peled. I was born and raised in Kiryat Bialik, a city in the beautiful north of Israel, right next to Haifa. However, for the past three years, I have lived in Jerusalem while completing my bachelor's degree in politics and Communication.
From an early age, I have been engaged in the education field. I was involved in the Scout movement as an instructor, and I also took charge of the Scouts education domain. In addition, I took part in the frameworks of delegations and student exchanges of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Likewise, during my military served as a teacher in the IDF in boarding school for youth at risk. There, I oversaw the IDF recruitment sector and was responsible for teaching my students history and citizenship in addition to fun and value-based activities. It was a very fulfilling experience for me which taught me a lot, specially by giving me a wider perspective about the citizens living in my country.
After my service, I was twice an emissary of the Jewish Agency’s summer camps’ project in the United States, where I worked with kids by creating educative activities and teaching Hebrew. Besides, my job consisted in strengthening the connection between the Jewish American community and Israel.
while studying for my bachelor’s degree, I set up an Instagram page called “Look at Israel”, which spreads information about my county from my point of view by sharing about Israel’s society and culture.
Furthermore, I took part in the establishment of the LGBT pride movement in my college in order to create a safe space and an open dialogue for students who are members of the community and for supporters.
My most recent job was at Jerusalem’s municipality in the marketing and advertising sector of the Jerusalem’s Youth Center department. The center fulfills the needs of Jerusalem’s youth from the ages of 18 to 40 by providing events of leisure and taking care of the employment, careers, and community life in the city.

Campus sessions I can run:
Jewish identity = Israeli identity? - available in person and on Zoom
Israel is the Jewish state. The Jewish people has been connected to it for thousands of generations, we learn about it in many points in life and mention Jerusalem every year in the Passover Haggadah, and yet, every person in the Jewish community has different identity components and a type of connection to Israel.
How does that make us feel as individuals and as a group? Is Israel an inseparable part of the Jewish identity?
In this session we will talk about this connection and the way it makes us feel within our community. We will learn about Israel’s national anthem and the identity of its biggest protestor (you’ll be surprised), and lastly, we will discuss and learn from each other’s thoughts and feelings towards Israel.
Israel is Sababa - available in person and on Zoom
The internet is a bustling domain, where you can find millions of opinions on every topic and trends that come and go. One of the more polarized and controversial topics online is Israel. It seems like everybody has something to say and many people base their opinions on trends and misconceptions. Lies are spread very easily and it is nearly impossible to tell what’s true and what’s false.
Therefore, it is very important to educate ourselves and share the right information. In this session we will learn how to address Israel online and show it in a non-political way, stemming from the personal connection and experiences of each one of us.
