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.
Call the Fellowship office at (561) 833-6150 for more information or to help sponsor a teacher's participation in Fellowship programs or in support of a local workshop being planned for summer 2020, facilitated by FHAO staff.
