We are continuing to receive pictures and thank you notes from the rescuers. Each JFR-supported Righteous Gentile received a special award of $3,500 for the purchase of food during the Christmas holiday season, for home heating fuel, and for medications. This award was in addition to the regular monthly awards. Please click here to see some of the notes.
Logan Greene, an 8th grade social studies and English language arts teacher from Berry Middle School in Birmingham, AL, received the JFR’s 2023 Robert I. Goldman Award for Excellence in Education. The award was presented to Logan at the JFR’s 2024 Advanced Seminar. Logan is a 2012 Alfred Lerner Fellow. The Goldman Award comes with a cash prize of $1,000.
In presenting the award to Logan, Stanlee Stahl, JFR’s Executive Vice President said, “Logan’s commitment to teaching the Holocaust is unparalleled. Logan is a talented and gifted educator who makes history come alive – he truly inspires! His dedication flows from his commitment, as an engaged citizen and as a devoted teacher, to ensure that this chapter of history is brought forward. It flows, too from his hope that students will model the ethical behavior of the rescuers and to learn from the past to forge a better future for our society.”
Our Advanced Seminar was held over Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend. We welcomed 22 Alfred Lerner Fellows from across the country. Our scholars, Dr. Dave Rich, Dr. Magda Teter, and Dr. Robert Williams were outstanding.
The JFR’s Summer Institute for Teachers (SIT) is planned for the end of June. We are looking forward to welcoming a new group of Alfred Lerner Fellows. We have an outstanding group of Holocaust scholars presenting at the 2024 SIT.
It seems that a number of our supporters did not realize we moved from New York City to New Jersey. We moved in June 2018. Here is our current address and telephone number – please update your records.
