The third YIVO EPYC Educators Seminar on East European Jewish Heritage will be held June 22 to 25, 2009, at the Center for Jewish History in New York City. Eligible participants in the Educators Seminar include teachers from various settings, including Jewish high schools, colleges, public schools and private schools, museums and afternoon religious schools, as well as graduate students in education and Jewish studies.


The seminar will include lectures by prominent scholars, musicians and performers, as well as practical pedagogic discussions focused on how to use the wealth of materials available through the EPYC curriculum and the YIVO archives in classrooms. The final day of the EPYC Seminar will be devoted to a guided walking tour of Brooklyn’s Jewish community of Borough Park, home to tens of thousands of Yiddish-speaking Hasidim and other Jews.


Seminar participants receive free tuition, course materials, books, and DVDs, as well as breakfast and lunch daily and a modest transportation stipend and will have access to the resources of the YIVO Library and Archives, as well as other treasures housed in the Center for Jewish History.
