Israel is a country that draws a lot of public attention around the globe. Nevertheless, both those who support Israel and those who are critical of its geopolitical standing and policies, usually have a very limited knowledge about the Israeli society and its political system. This course presents Israel from multiple perspectives - political, social, economic and cultural - in an attempt to expose the learners to a cutting edge academic research on the country. Each of the 13 sessions is focused on one aspect of the Israeli society. Every session starts with a general introduction of the issue at hand, hosting one expert or more, who share their most recent studies and insights on that specific field. Every 15 minutes, or so, the students are asked to answer an informative quiz of comprised of a single question. Upon the completion of each class, an online chat will be opened. Students studying for credit are expected to participate in it, ask relevant questions and answer questions about the required readings for this class. Students will graduate from this course with a better understanding of the Israeli society, better knowledge of the Israeli history, politics and economy, and better acquaintance with the varying groups of which the Israeli society is comprised....

I learned a lot, some content seemed biased though, and they presented the Jewish religion in a sense that it was nothing more than traditional and part of their culture, never presenting it as something that is deep and spiritual, something that is their faith in God. It was always viewed as their culture and tradition and so the way they presented it especially made the Ultra-Orthodox Jews seem Old-fashioned, behind the times, and ignorant in terms of the world. That is what I mean by biased.

I really enjoyed most of the video lectures the course provided. However it is quite unfortunate that most of the readings weren't made accessible unless you paid for it (which I refused to do). Also, I didn't find the quizzes challenging nor thought-provoking. Those 2 are the only reasons why I gave this course 3/5.

Many familiar faces that played a vital role from the founding of Israel before it was state was grossly missing.

The course was interesting, but I would have appreciated more academically rigorous assessments. As the course is currently designed, you either get 100% or 0%!
