Hosted by the Center for Jewish History, our New York workshop will be held Monday and Tuesday, June 24-25, 2013 in Manhattan. Educators will spend two days with historians, master teachers, and JWA staff members to explore the rich history of Jews in the Civil Rights and Labor Movements using "Living the Legacy", JWA's social justice curriculum. The New York workshop is open to educators in the greater New York area working in formal and informal Jewish settings. It will focus on material written for students in grades 8-12. Kosher meals are included. Places in the workshop will be given on a first come, first served basis.

Hosted by the Jewish Community High School of the Bay, our Bay Area workshop will be held Monday and Tuesday, August 5-6, 2013 in San Francisco. Educators will spend two days learning with historians, master teachers, and JWA staff members to explore the rich history of American Jewish women and learn how to use historical sources across the day school curriculum.
