Conflicts of Interest Certificate Program  August 2024

Application Form

Thank you for your interest in applying to the Conflicts of Interest Certificate Program! The iCenter is able to offer this certification — at no charge to you — with thanks to the generous support of our funders.
COI reimagines how to effectively engage with one of the most contentious topics today: the Arab-Israeli / Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The challenges of the global Jewish community in how to teach and grapple with conflicts in general and the conflict in particular are greater than ever. The reverberations of October 7 continue to be felt not only throughout Israel, but also across governments, businesses, media, and college campuses, as well as Jewish organizations all over the world.
Participants in COI will gain confidence, core competencies, and content knowledge to bring meaningful conflict education to their settings and communities.

This cohort will meet on the below dates. Both virtual sessions will take place from 12-1:30pm CT.

  • Opening Session: July 25 (on Zoom)
  • In-Person Seminar: August 4-6 (in Chicago)*
  • Closing Session: August 15 (on Zoom) 

If you have any questions, please be in touch by emailing Ari Feinstein.


*Participants will arrive in Chicago on Sunday afternoon, with the program beginning on Sunday evening with dinner.

Please note at this time, the Certificate Program is available only to applicants based in North America.
