Following a 6-year hiatus due to security concerns, the US-Israel Educational Foundation (USIEF), the Fulbright commission for Israel, and the US Department of Education decided to renew Israel's participation in the Fulbright-Hays Program - which sends dozens of groups of US educators on educational tours overseas. In the wake of this decision, a delegation of 16 US educators from junior high schools, high schools and institutions of higher education arrived in Israel on July 22nd. The goal of the group visit is improving teaching of Israel-related topics in the US educational system. After returning to the USA, each delegate will prepare an Israel-related curricular project, based on information and insights gained through personal experience in Israel. Prior to arrival of the delegation in Israel, its members spent 3 weeks in Egypt.
