The Center for Holocaust Education thrives as a dynamic, interactive, and engaging program division within the EVJCC – continuing to teach this generation and future generations the importance of acceptance and peace. Programs include presentations, guest speakers, exhibits, Holocaust education curriculum for schools, an annual Yom Hashoah program and Generations After, a program for children and grandchildren of survivors.
Our events encourage collaboration with a greater understanding while honoring and respecting individual histories and traditions.
The Center for Holocaust Education continues to reach people through programs in conjunction with the City of Chandler, Maricopa Community Colleges and the Phoenix Holocaust Association.
