Resources for Educators About the Conflict in the Middle East

Updated November 20, 2023

The terrorist attack by Hamas on Israel and the resulting war in the Gaza Strip has led to thousands of lives lost. Many NAIS community members are worrying about loved ones and mourning personal loss. The conflict is also likely spurring difficult but important conversations in schools. We hope some of the resources below, shared previously with heads of school, can help NAIS school leaders and educators as they support their communities; restore a sense of safety; guide students through understanding the conflict, the context, and its impact; and manage complex conversations in their communities.
