Working with NYC teachers

Each year the JFR offers a one-day seminar on the Holocaust for New York City metro area high school English and social studies teachers.  This year we will have Professor Henry Feingold (Professor Emeritus, American Jewish History and Holocaust Studies) and Professor Atina Grossman (Professor of History, The Cooper Union) speak about “Refugee Policy and Jewish Life in the Weimar Republic”. 

This year’s seminar will be held Tuesday, January 18, 2011 from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm at the Union for Reform Judaism.   The program is entirely free of charge, and a kosher lunch will be provided. 

There are still spots open for this event.  Registration is required.  To register please visit www.jfr.org/seminar

For more information please contact Director of Education Kristen Lefebvre at 212-727-9955 or klefebvre@jfr.org.
