Who does falafel belong to? 

What is the most Israeli food? When you think of Israeli foods, the first thing that comes to mind is... Well, maybe it's in the top 3, but falafel has always been considered a particularly beloved Israeli dish. And how could it not be? It's hot, tasty, and comforting. In a pita with tahini and pickles, it's an Israeli salad. In the workshop, we will learn to make falafel like pros. We'll talk and learn about its history—where it comes from and how one dish has created so much debate about who it belonged to and what its country of origin is. 

The War in Israel - Artistic Expression - Israel Summer 2024 

Join us for a workshop centered around using art as a means of expressing our emotions amidst the ongoing conflict in Israel. Through drawing and painting in a creative setting, we'll engage in a collective dialogue about various coping mechanisms. 

Together, we will delve into discussions about the future, envisioning the trajectory and our aspirations for the State of Israel. Harnessing creativity, we aim to craft and visualize the Israel we aspire to see, considering how our relationship with Israel has evolved since October 7th. 

We hope this session can offer you some reflection, and communal support in the face of the ongoing challenges in Israel.
