Join Alicia Yacoby from the organization Our 6 Million (Shem Vener) and Unpacked for Educators’ Senior Director of Israel Education Avi Posen as they explore how to put a face on the Shoah.
They will share how the powerful candle tradition is quickly spreading throughout the Jewish world, and will also explore how to use our video series, Faces of the Holocaust, to teach about four key figures that each represent a critical side of the history.
