Lesson One: 
The Promised Land
In the book of Genesis, G‑d promises Abraham that if he transmits his legacy of ethical monotheism to his household, his children will inherit the land of Israel. Why was the land promised even before the nation existed? In what way is the land of Israel integral to what it means to be Jewish? In this lesson, we visit the city of Be'ersheba, where G‑d made his covenant with Abraham. And we discover that we care about Israel because it is here that our mission as a people is rooted. 

Lesson Two: 
Living on The Land
What was life like for the people in Israel in the days when the Temple stood? So many of the commandments can only be performed in the land of Israel and are intimately linked with an agrarian lifestyle. Why must a spiritual people be involved with working the land? Why did the generation of Jews in the desert fear the land, while Moshe longed to enter? In this lesson, we visit the city of Hebron, and reflect on the inherent tension generated by the land of Israel. And we find that we care about Israel because of the way it challenges us to resolve contradictions. 

Lesson Three: 
The Holy Land
What does it mean for a land to be holy? How can we tell that it is different? And what implications does this have for the people living within that land? We visit the city of Tiberias and discuss how sacred spaces nurture and feed us. And we find that we care about Israel because it embodies a spiritual sensitivity that is linked to our own. 

Lesson Four: 
Whose Land Is It Anyway?
Israel has endured numerous battles and conquests throughout history. How can we determine who has a legitimate claim to the land? What criteria shall we use to determine ownership? We visit the city of Nablus (Shechem) and see the role it has played at critical junctures in our past. And we find that we care about Israel because—it is ours. 

Lesson Five: 
A Land Like Other Lands?
What is the vision for a Jewish state? Is it meant to be a land like other lands, granting the sovereignty enjoyed by other people? Or are we meant to be somehow different? We visit the city of Safed, the watchpoint, and see Israel as a beacon to the world. And we find that we care about the land of Israel because it represents the ways in which we are meant to be distinct.

Lesson Six: 
Israel and The Diaspora
Even though Israel exists today as a modern state, most Jews continue to live in the Diaspora. Have those of us living outside Israel become somehow disconnected? Or is it possible to retain our bond with Israel regardless of our place of residence? We visit Jerusalem, the city of peace and reconciliation. And we find that we care about Israel because it is a part of all of us now, and because it holds our future.
