Professor Kellerman's work advances the values of a multicultural campus that express openness and tolerance towards difference, and in which the classroom serves as a model for safe intellectual exploration among the student body of Israel. In addition, as a religious Jewish Israeli he brings a unique and fascinating perspective to this work. ACCESS INFORM programs introduce ACCESS participants to some of the most thoughtful speakers on issues related to Israel, Middle East, and broader Jewish concerns. The goal of these programs is to support ACCESS participants in becoming effective, articulate and serious interlocutors and advocates to different constituencies.
