Opportunity for Jewish educators: Yad Vashem

From Yad Yashem: Dear Whidbey Island Jewish Community,

We wanted to let you know that Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Museum in Israel, is offering an amazing opportunity for educators in Jewish schools and supplemental schools.    They have reserved 3 spots for educators from Washington State to attend their advanced winter seminar on the Yad Vashem campus in Jerusalem.

Topics will focus on Music, Literature, Art, Judaics and Technology. The group will be kept small, with approximately 20 participants.  The seminar will be held in English.  All land costs are covered.  (Teachers are responsible for their airfare to Jerusalem.  We are working with Jewish Education Services to try to arrange for some scholarship funds.)

Four educators from the Seattle area attended Yad Vashem’s advanced summer institute in July.  We would be happy to put you in touch with them if you would like to know about the experience.If you are interested in attending, or if you would like more information, please contact:Ilana Cone Kennedy, Director of Education Washington State Holocaust Education Resource Center ilanak@wsherc.org  |  206-774-2201
