This book develops a new philosophy of Israel education. "Person-centered" Israel education is concerned with developing in individual learners the ability to understand and make rational, emotional, and ethical decisions about Israel, and about the challenges Israel regularly faces, whether they be existential, spiritual, democratic, humanitarian, national, etc. Chazan begins by laying out the terms of the conversation then examines the six-pronged theory of "person-centered" Israel education to outline the aims, content, pedagogy, and educators needed to implement this program. Finally, the author meditates on what a transformation from ethnic to ethical education might look like in this context and others.

Editorial Reviews

"This short book is a written analysis of the relational approach that  the Israeli people take to education in their country. . This was a nice history of what Israel education was and what it can be." (Justin Dilliplane, Resolved for Christ, resolvedfc.blogspot.de, February, 2018)
