Lamed: Israel Education

Engage. Educate. Apply. Israel.

"Lamed" is the Hebrew root for the verb "to teach". But Lamed does more than just teach. למד is also found in the root for "to learn", and here at Lamed: Israel Education, we use our platform to both learn and teach in order to expand our community's experience with Israel. Through engaging with Israeli culture and people, educating about politics and daily life, and teaching how to apply this knowledge in the world, Lamed aims to prepare the greater community with a well-rounded, multifaceted understanding of Israel so that information can be more evenly distributed to the next generation of leaders.
