Transportation to the Museum tour may be provided based on availability and need. This program is made possible through the generous support of the EGL Charitable Foundation with support from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany: Rabbi Israel Miller Fund for Shoah Research, Documentation and Education, the David Himelberg Foundation in memory of David and Rose Himelberg, and the Sue Wilder Charitable Fund at Our Fund, Inc.

1. Only public middle and high schools in NY, NJ, PA, CT, RI and MA are eligible.
2. A minimum of 60 students from your school must participate. There is no maximum.
3. All students must participate in all three phases of the Partnership.
Q: Who are the Lipper Interns?
A: Lipper Interns are undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled in colleges and universities in the northeastern United States. They have studied the history of the Holocaust at the Museum in preparation for working with your middle and high school students.
Q: How will my class benefit from the Lipper School Partnership?
A: The Lipper School Partnership is designed to enhance and enrich your curriculum, providing a rare opportunity for students to learn from other young people (our Lipper Interns) and the Museum’s unique collection. Since 1998 this successful program has brought in-depth Holocaust and social justice education to tens of thousands of middle and high school students across the northeast.
Q: How do I set up our Lipper School Partnership?
A: The Lipper School Partnership is available in the fall semester, September through December, or the spring semester, January through June.
