Temple Emanuel in Pascack Valley, NJ is working with Jerusalem Edtech Solutions (JETS Israel) on a unique project of online education.

The project, entitled The Holocaust: Remembering and Rebuilding, provides an overview of the Holocaust and the Rebirth of the State of Israel for the Temple's Bar and Bat Mitzva class. Students meet online over the course of three months to gain a deeper understanding of the Shoah and the establishment of the State of Israel, and how they impacted -- and continue to impact -- the Jewish World.
