At Jerusalem U, we’re creating Jewish- and Israel-related content that younger people will watch. In 2017, we made a strategic decision to expand from our primary focus on feature-length films to also include YouTube.

Facebook Israel and The National Library of Israel are embarking on a joint project to mark the start of the school year: they will upload to the social media network more than 1,000 pictures of Israeli schoolchildren taken from the 1950s to the 1990s so that users can tag themselves and tell the story behind the photos.

In the fall of 2017, Echoes & Reflections, a partnership program of ADL, USC Shoah Foundation, and Yad Vashem, debuted its new website to further carry out its mission of supporting educators with dynamic classroom materials and professional development to effectively teach about the Holocaust. Since 2005, Echoes & Reflections has impacted more than 60,000 educators, reaching an estimated 6 million students across the United States.
