The Berman-Lippa Family Foundation Debate Club

Similarly to leading universities around the world, IDC Herzliyas’ debate club has won prizes in Israel and abroad. The club enables students to improve their debating and speaking skills. Debating is a competitive sport, whose aim is to champion a position through the use of rhetoric, logically building an argument and critical thinking. Club members are selected each year from hundreds of applicants. The club’s achievements are impressive - including winning the Israeli championship several years in a row, winning the European championship and reaching the finals of the world championship. Last year, the club members not only reached the finals of all the competitions in Israel but also placed second in the international championship in Berlin, the European championship in Belgrade and the Israeli championship.
