In July, awards were sent to each JFR-supported rescuer. We would like to share some of the photos and notes we received – click here to see them. They thank you for remembering them and for making their lives easier with the financial help they receive from the JFR.
On Tuesday, August 8, 2023, Stanlee Stahl, JFR Executive Vice President, and Bernadette Bennett (Lerner Fellow 2001) presented the JFR’s new online program, How Was It Possible? A Holocaust Curriculum For and By Teachers™ at a Symposium for Social Studies teachers in Palm Beach County, FL. A big thank you Kim Coombs (Lerner Fellow 2022) who made it possible for us to present and to inSight Through Education, JFR’s Holocaust Center of Excellence in Palm Beach County, for their support of Holocaust education. We did three sessions with some 70 teachers attending. The response to the program was outstanding! It was also great seeing so many Lerner Fellows at the Symposium! We will be providing additional information on the program in October.
