Join us for an enlightening seminar. Daily coursework includes dialogue between Rabbi Gary Bretton-Granatoor and Fr. Dennis McManus, lectures from leading scholars, visits to the Museum’s galleries, and meetings with Holocaust survivors. Learn how teachings of the Hebrew Bible have guided Jewish individuals, institutions, and communities throughout history. Explore issues of continuity of cultural identity, responsibility to community, and decision-making by examining the impact of WWII and the Nazi genocide on Jewish lives and communities in Europe.
