Jerusalem Debate Camp

Like to argue? Want to present yourself like a pro? Looking for a challenge? Want to represent Israel all around the world? Want to improve your English?

The Yoni Cohen – Idov Center for Debate and Rhetoric presents:


Debating is the world’s most popular way of learning persuasion, public speaking, argumentation and rhetoric. It is a thrilling, challenging game, in which you learn to argue convincingly and confidently as well as to speak charismatically in front of an audience.

This workshop will have both a Beginner and an Advanced group and is therefore open to both those who have previous experience in debate and public speaking and those who are trying it out for the first time! There will be groups in English and in Hebrew.

The workshop is directed by Alon Cohen who has over 10 years of experience in teaching debating. This year’s head Counselors are: Eliav Markowitz, Zvi Borowski and Avinoam Troen who are all members of the 2022 Israeli national team. They have been debating for over 4 years and are also graduates of the Jerusalem Summer Workshop. 

Who is this Workshop good for?

  • Anyone who sees themselves in a leadership position.
  • Anyone who wants to improve the her/his self – confidence, and oral skills.
  • Anyone who needs to improve their English!
  • Anyone who wants to learn how to think, speak and present themselves better.

All participants are welcome, and we pride ourselves on having brought together teens from all religious and cultural backgrounds to debate and learn with one another.
