Antisemitism, Hate, and Holocaust Education

 

JCRC commemorates the Holocaust with educational programming for students and the entire community. Every year, we plan programs for Yom HaShoah, Diversity Day (for area students), and Kristallnacht. Our commitment to genocide education stems from Jewish history and our collective responsibility for one another.

 

Some of our recent past programs include:

  • Screening of "Hidden" and memorial service
  • Screening of "A Promise to Our Fathers" and memorial service
