Jewish Education Program
Since 1990, our Jewish Education Program has worked with educators and young people to connect the past to the present. Through the integration of history and ethics, this program promotes an understanding of how Jewish values can inspire students to combat prejudice with compassion and indifference with participation.
Building on the internationally recognized strategies and resources of Facing History and Ourselves, the program uses materials and pedagogy developed specifically for Jewish educational settings that honor the principles of social justice and repairing the world.
Directed by Jan Darsa, co-author of Facing History and Ourselves: The Jews of Poland and a 2010 winner of the Covenant Award, the Jewish Education Program has reached over 1,500 educators and more than 75,000 students in day and congregational schools in both formal and informal settings through workshops, seminars, and resources.
