Holocaust Education Program

Lessons of the Past Teach Tolerance in the Present

The Holocaust Education Program is Generously Supported by the Viterbi Family Foundation

The Holocaust Education Program (HEP) draws upon lessons of the past to implement methods of appreciating diversity. While the Holocaust was an event that victimized Jews, its evil is universal. Innovative programming helps in building tolerance, creating dialogues, and promoting a greater appreciation of diversity. The Astor Judaica Library and Community Holocaust Memorial Garden provide ideal settings for this program.

The Holocaust Education Program has:
• Developed a comprehensive curriculum for students from elementary to high schools.
• Created more than 50 informational binders to assist educators.
• Provided training to teachers, to help them create multimedia lesson plans.
• Organized many literary and cultural outreach activities for all age groups.
