Classrooms Without Borders

Classrooms Without Borders (CWB) provides world-class professional development for teachers through study seminars that take place outside of their professional environments. History, culture, politics and current events are experienced "live" through learning tours abroad.

The exposure to ancient and modern realities from a "first-person" perspective gives teachers a greater appreciation of their subject of study and specialty.They return to the classroom highly motivated and energized, their intellectual and creative batteries recharged and strengthened.

CWB employs the very best scholars and educators to steer and accompany the teachers throughout the program.

"I came home feeling more connected to my history. Listening to Avi’s words as I was standing at Masada, the Southern Wall, and at the City of David – looking over the land, feeling the heat, thinking about how innovative my ancestors were, imagining how passionate they must have been; the stories and history that I learned since my religious school days became part of my identity instead of merely facts in my head."
