Facing History and Ourselves

For many years, the Palm Beach Fellowship of Christians & Jews has been providing full scholarships to outstanding teachers in Palm Beach County to attend the Facing History and Ourselves (FHAO) summer workshop, “Holocaust and Human Behavior." 

 

The information, training, and inspiration that the teachers bring back to their classrooms, schools, and community are invaluable to them personally and professionally, and dovetail beautifully with the mission of the Fellowship. With Holocaust Studies a mandated but unfunded part of the State of Florida’s curriculum, the Fellowship understands the importance of providing these tools to local teachers to continue the work of not only Holocaust education but combating social injustice and unjust discrimination of all kinds. Supporting educators to participate in this program is one of the things we do of which we are most proud.

 

Palm Beach County educators interested in participating in "Teaching Holocaust and Human Behavior" in 2021 should write to info@palmbeachfellowship.net for more information and an application as soon as possible as spots are limited. The four-day interactive virtual seminar will be presented twice -- June 28-July 1 and August 2-5. All fees and materials will be provided at no cost by the Fellowship, as well as a $200 stipend paid upon completion to compensate teachers for their time.
