To study Israel means to engage with a wide range of opinions on important topics, including ones that are contentious, and maybe even offensive. Resources on this site represent a variety of academic and political opinions. They do not necessarily reflect the views of the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies or Brandeis University. We encourage users to approach each resource critically. Remember that it may not be credible in all respects, nor does it represent the last word on any topic.
