South Jersey Holocaust Coalition to Present Workshop

“The Holocaust and the Jewish State” will be presented on Thursday, March 30, 4:30–7 p.m. at St. Augustine Preparatory School, 611 Cedar Ave., Richland.

Presenter is Anthony Iaconelli, an Alfred Lerner Fellow in Holocaust Studies from The Jewish Foundation for the Righteous and Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at St. Augustine. He is also one of only 500 Master Educators committed to teaching and preserving the Legacy of Righteous Gentiles, non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust.

At this workshop, the indirect links between these two epochal events in the workshop’s title will be examined. Issues explored will include the Jewish and Palestinian claims to Palestine; the Balfour Declaration; Zionism in the interwar years; the impact of WWII and the Holocaust on Jewish migration; and the struggle faced by Holocaust Survivors upon arriving in Israel.

Through Power-Point, film and other media, participants can anticipate a lively interchange of ideas and debate as we explore this most-controversial, and complicated issue. The workshops is for students, teachers and members of the public ready to listen and engage in this seminal subject.

PD HOURS: 3.0 professional development hours will be granted by the N.J. Commission on Holocaust Education and is compliments of St. Augustine Preparatory School, Jewish Federation of Cumberland, Gloucester & Salem Counties, and the N.J. Commission of Holocaust Education.
