Volunteering with Holocaust Survivors:

This project is the product of a partnership of our program and “Amcha” Organization. Throughout the duration of the academic year, students meet one on one with Holocaust survivors. These meetings take place once a week between 60-90 minutes, generally at the home of the survivor. The aim of the project is to promote meaningful dialogue between the students and the community of Holocaust survivors, while providing survivors with emotional and social support.

Student Curating Experience:

On March 10th, 2015, students participated in an exciting seminar at Atlit Heritage Site. Seven of our students were selected to present original museum plans after completing a course called “Training in Curating” with museum educator Tami Rich. The project aimed to familiarize students with conceptual and practical aspects of historical representation at a heritage site such as Atlit, while providing them with a unique opportunity for practical experience in curating.
