With the support of affiliates around the world, Project Interchange conducts ongoing alumni programming and outreach on key issues relating to Israel and the region. Project Interchange participants reflect an understanding of Israel that could only come from first-hand experience, and which is expressed through their news reporting and analysis, policy positions, speeches, business activities and enduring connections with Israeli leaders and institutions.
Project Interchange relies on donors who support its unique purpose and the measurable results its programs yield.
“The great success of Project Interchange is not that it provides seminar participants with all the answers-but it inspires them to delve more deeply, to think of Israel more carefully and with greater empathy and to seek an even deeper understanding of the political, religious, cultural and strategic factors at issue in the Middle East today. This program is without peer.”
