Advancing Scholarship


The Center is committed to the production and dissemination of new knowledge about Israel. We invite leading Israeli scholars and postdoctoral fellows to teach courses and deliver public lectures. Their presence on campus is central to our mission of educating students and the community, and promotes collaboration and exchange between UCLA and Israeli academic institutions.

Internationally renowned scholars and policymakers participate in major conferences on important issues confronting Israel and the world. These events foster innovative perspectives on Israel and bring them to researchers, students and the Greater Los Angeles community.
