Twenty-three Alfred Lerner Fellows attended the 2019 Advanced Seminar. Our scholars were outstanding! We welcomed two new scholars to the JFR – Paul Salmons from London and Joseph Benatov from the University of Pennsylvania. Paul will be teaching at the 2019 Summer Institute for Teachers.
We would like to thank inSight Through Education in Palm Beach Gardens, FL for inviting Stanlee Stahl to participate in their program “Let’s Stand Together Against Hate” on January 31, 2019. Professor Peter Hayes also presented at the program.
Stanlee also taught in several classrooms while in Florida. We would like to thank Bogdan Paraschivoiu, JFR Alfred Lerner Fellow, for welcoming Stanlee Stahl into his middle school Holocaust elective at Omni Middle School in Boca Raton, FL.
