The works to deepen teachers’ knowledge and strengthen their ability to implement Holocaust studies in their classrooms by taking them to authentic sites in Europe. This year, Great Neck resident and Temple Isaiah congregant Meryl Menashe served as program liaison for 25 educators from around the nation who are now bringing the lessons they learned to schools across the country.
Each year, the program’s summer seminar brings teachers—Jewish and non-Jewish alike—first to an orientation in the United States where they meet survivors and second generations, along with scholars and experts in Holocaust studies. The group then travels to Holocaust and Jewish heritage sites and memorials in Germany and Poland. As they travel, the teachers are witnesses to testimonies from survivors and lectures from prominent scholars and guides. Menashe will present a photo journey of this year’s trip.
Temple Isaiah is located at 1 Chelsea Place. For more infor-mation, call 516-487-5373.
