Meet Our Faculty

Prof. Michal Frenkel
I have taught in the RIS graduate program for the last two years. As Jerusalem constitutes a microcosm of Israeli society and its internal conflicts, I have found that my students, who live in this city and are exposed to both its beauty and its hardship, develop a richer and more complex understanding of Israeli society and can bring this complexity into their academic analysis of the different aspects of Israel.
Je m'appelle Simon Epstein et je donne des cours à l'Institut international Rothberg depuis les années 1980. Mon sémi­naire au programme des "Graduates" porte sur l'histoire de l'Etat d'Israël de 1948 à aujourd'hui. Il traite de la po­li­tique intérieure (la vie parlementaire, l'économie, la so­ciété) et de la politique extérieure (les stratégies, les cri­ses, les guerres). La progression est chronologique, abordant suc­ces­sive­ment les phases qui marquent l'histoire du pays tout en insistant sur la spécificité de chacune de ces phases : 1948-1956, 1956-1967, 1967-1973, 1973-1977, 1977-1982, 1982-1992, 1992-2000, 2000-2011.

My name is Raviv Schwartz and I've been teaching in the Community Leadership and Philanthropy Studies (CLPS) program since its inception. The courses I teach tend to focus on the more conceptual aspects of the nonprofit enterprise. One is a "primer" of sorts on the 3rd Sector and Civil Society in Israel and globally; another is a course on "Philanthropy" and a third addresses the thorny issue of governance in nonprofits, with an emphasis on the work of nonprofit boards. I've enjoyed all of these classes tremendously, for they have allowed for a considerable degree of class discussion (drawing on the professional and volunteer experience of the students) and, as such, have differed significantly from year to year

Ich unterrichte seit 2006 im Rahmen des RIS Graduiertenprogramms. Meine Kurse haben meist einen historiographischen Schwerpunkt. Sie beschäftigen sich mit der Frage wie Geschichte im Rahmen der modernen Geschichtswissenschaften geschrieben wird, und welche Ansätze heute zur Verfügung stehen. Diese Blick hinter die Kulissen der professionellen Geschichtsschreibung soll den StudentInnen helfen...
