Zoé Tara Zeigherman: “Zionism & Anti-Zionism: The History of Two Opposing Ideas” — The project aims to produce a stylish YouTube video series featuring Dr. Einat Wilf that makes Zionism trendy and fills the gap in knowledge of Jewish history on college campuses.

Robert Tepper: “The Jewish Question: A One-Man Play in a Paris Hotel Room With Theodor Herzl” — The project aims to devise a one-man stage play illuminating Zionist visionary Theodor Herzl’s ten-day stay at the Hôtel de Castille in Paris, France, in 1895, during which he wrote his famous pamphlet The Jewish State.
Lievnath Faber: “The Jewish Manifesto” — The project aims to formulate, in a collaborative manner among more than 300 Dutch Jews, an interactive and multidimensional on/offline manifesto that is a declaration of the dreams, desires, fears, and demands of the Jewish community in the Netherlands.
