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:
Summer Debate Workshop for Teens in Jerusalem.


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.

The debate coaches are internationally ranked debaters with years of experience and success in both Israel and around the world. They will be working closely will all participants to provide them with the best (and most fun) debating experience.

 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.
