Overview

about-img1

Emet Education is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to become a leading provider of online lessons and resources in the area of Israel education to the general public, schools and educators.

What makes Emet Education’s approach unique is the emphasis on critical thinking. Emet’s programs encourage the use of fact-based logic and reasoning so students can arrive at their own informed conclusions. This methodology empowers participants to filter fact from opinion in studies about the often polarizing issues surrounding Israel.

Emet Education offers video lessons, books, teacher guides, and presentations that cover a wide range of topics and issues. Emet Education’s approach combines thought-provoking questions, debates and interactive discussion in a modular format.

Over the years, the modules have yielded consistently positive results, whether delivered as formal education in a senior high school or university classroom, as informal education on campuses, or as talks and courses for adult audiences of all denominations.

Emet Education Founder/Author – Richard Bass

Richard Bass is the founder of Emet Education and author of Israel in World Relations, which is fast becoming one of the most sought after resources for teaching about Israel. Using critical thinking, he takes participants through a process of analyzing claims, and how to apply that process to the often complicated and polarizing topics that are part of learning about Israel. One of his central aims is to encourage people to uncover facts, see both sides of an issue, and evaluate the strength of competing arguments.

A former U.S. college football coach and teacher of law and philosophy, Richard has presented his work to audiences of all denominations at international conferences in Europe and Israel, to Canadian Senators and Members of Parliament, and to communities, campuses, and university student groups across North America.
