Join school teachers and administrators, educators from the Museum, Holocaust survivors, and other distinguished speakers for an enlightening conference for teachers in Catholic elementary and middle schools. Daily coursework includes visiting the Museum’s galleries, lectures from leading scholars, and testimony from Holocaust survivors. Participants will learn how teachings of the Hebrew Bible have guided Jewish individuals, institutions, and communities throughout history. We will explore issues of continuity of cultural identity, responsibility to community, and decision-making by examining the impact of WWII and the Nazi genocide on Jewish lives and communities in Europe.
This course is free but pre-registration is required. Teachers will receive symposium materials and meals.
