The Future of Zionism Starts Here.

The Zionist Education Initiative brings together people from all over the world for custom-designed seminars to educate and inspire a new generation of Zionist leaders.


Educational Programming for Dreamers

The Nefesh B’Nefesh Zionist Education Initiative inspires participants to dream about Zionism. Through its diverse programming, Zionist Education Initiative educators engage with dreamers (visitors to our campus) as they learn about Zionism’s core axioms. Capitalizing on Nefesh B’Nefesh’s achievements, the Zionist Education Initiative is the next step in the organization’s work.


The ZEI is committed to custom tailoring programming for each group that comes in. We look forward to building a program for your next visit.


ZEI Lectures offer perspectives on some of the most thought provoking issues Zionists face. Lectures range in length from 15 minutes to one hour sessions.


Participants are divided into small groups where they discuss various outlooks on contentious challenges facing Zionists. The groups then gather together to compare perspectives and findings.


Education takes many forms, participants learn about Zionism by playing entertaining and content filled games.


Nefesh B’ Nefesh Aliyah Campus

Situated in the center of Jerusalem, right next to Cinema City, the Nefesh B’Nefesh aliyah campus has become the gathering point for people the world over to participate in custom design seminars to learn about the role Zionism plays in today’s world. The modern Zionist dream comes alive at the Nefesh B’Nefesh Aliyah campus.

“Nefesh B’Nefesh’s longstanding tradition of facilitating Aliyah was built on the foundations of Zionism. Now the next generation of Zionists can begin dreaming about making their mark on the future of the Jewish people. The Zionist Education Initiative is the place where those dreams can be developed and cultivated.”
