This program examines housing and community development in Israel, with a focus on the holy city of Jerusalem. Through lectures and daily field trips, we will learn about critical housing problems facing the city’s diverse population and efforts to build new neighborhoods and regenerate older neighborhoods against the backdrop of competing religious, cultural, and national claims. We will study the political and ideological factors that inform housing policy and the role of the state and community organizations in planning and community development. We will also explore the modern city of Tel Aviv, as well as learn about the Kibbutz movement, the role of development towns, the housing problems of the Bedouin population, Israeli Arabs, Palestinians, foreign workers, and much more.
