Travel for Teachers
When you travel with us you become a Zachor Shoah Scholar. That is because traveling with us is no walk in the park. Its more of a marathon...towards deep understanding of ourselves, our students, pedagogy, and of course the Holocaust.
Zachor Shoah Scholars are an elite group of secondary school teachers, particularly middle school teachers, who have dedicated a significant portion of their lives towards guiding students towards creating caring communities grounded in democratic values and to bearing witness to history's "ugliness" while striving to keep the memory of the victims alive. These are teachers who believe that every person has a purpose and a gift and teach utilizing interdisciplinary approaches because they value their students and they value their teacher teams.
Our travel programs consist of 14 days of intense emergence with the history and culture of each city and town we visit. We stay in 4 and 5 star hotels located in the heart of Jewish quarters, eat local cuisine, and spend days reading, discussing, visiting, and engaging the subject and each other.
Our next Travel opportunity for teachers is July 2021. We know our travel programs take you away from your well earned and deserved summer breaks and for that reason we take great pride in ensuring that your time with us will be enjoyable, as well as educational. For these reasons we start planning our trips a year or more in advance.
