We are proud of Risha

Hi everyone. We miss all of you very much. We are very proud of Richa's ideas and will be supporting her financially and otherwise to help make her project a great success. We look forward to more of our summer particpants undertaking bold projects to effectuate the process of teaching the lessons of the Holocaust. We will supply you with books and the means to bring in a survivor to speak to your class or better still to your school. Here's to a better world through education. Best regards from all of us.

Thank you HEN for your support! The kick-off to the Jewish Culture Project was a great success. Students met in the freezing weather on Nov.9 for a remembrance walk, where they brought a simple index card with one fact about the Holocaust. After sharing our information, we walked 1 and 1/2 miles. They gained some perspective of the symbolism behind our walk as we discussed how much walking the Holocaust victims had to do.
