about icnext

Is a two-year program that educates Cleveland’s Jewish high school students on the core issues of Israeli society and contemporary geopolitics, and includes a 10-day fact-finding trip to Israel. Bringing together a cross-section of Jewish teens from all denominations, this program includes local seminars on issues including Zionism, history, current events, and culture. Students also practice journalism skills, participate in a local mifgash [encounter] with Israeli teens from Beit Shean/Emek HaMayanot, and develop projects ranging from photo exhibits to writing articles for the Cleveland Jewish News and Israel-focused divrei Torah.

PHOTO EXHIBITS

For the last eight years, icnext participants have shared their stories of Israel with the Cleveland community through the lenses of their cameras. Each year, the icnext cohorts have shown us their visions of Israel in the months following their Israel trips by curating and producing provocative, thought-provoking photo exhibits that have allowed us to catch a glimpse of their impressions of the multifaceted, complex nature of the land, people, and places of Israel. 

Now for the first time, you are invited to see all eight exhibits, available fully online. This is your chance to journey through Israel through the eyes of rising leaders in the American Jewish community. We hope that you’ll explore with open eyes!
