Jewish Foundation for the Righteous


The Florida Holocaust Museum has been identified as a Center of Excellence by the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous. The Holocaust Centers of Excellence Program is a partnership between the JFR and the participating Holocaust center. In agreeing to participate in the program, each center receives two initial scholarships for the Summer Institute for Teachers and commits to nominating two educators each year thereafter. Additionally, each center agrees to sponsor Holocaust teacher education programs that draw on JFR materials and training models. The centers make a commitment to teach the Holocaust in as comprehensive a manner as possible and to include the subject of rescue. Teachers who attend JFR programs - known as Alfred Lerner Fellows - form a cadre of educators for each local center as well as for the JFR.
