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 the 2020 "Holocaust and Human Behavior" course are invited to register for the online version being offered in lieu of the originally scheduled "live" seminar which was canceled due to covid-19. The course will take place July 13-16 with a combination of online self-study and zoom sessions.

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.
