Lipper Internship for Holocaust Education

Lipper Internship for Holocaust Education The Lipper Internship is a paid, semester-long teaching opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students in NY, NJ, PA,CT,RI and MA. To apply go to www.mjhnyc.org/lipper

Since fall 1998, the Lipper Internship has brought together graduate and undergraduate students from across the Northeast to train in New York City for a semester-long internship in museum education. Prior to the beginning of the semester Interns attend an intensive 9-day training session at the Museum to learn how to teach public middle and high school students about the Holocaust. During training Interns meet with Museum staff, hear testimony from Holocaust survivors, and learn methods for teaching from artifacts in the Museum's collection. Following training, Interns work in pairs, visiting several middle and high schools in their college communities to implement the three parts of the Internship program. The Lipper Internship benefits students and teachers in schools throughout the Northeast, providing an introductory lesson using images of artifacts and photographs from the Museum collection before the tour and a post-visit session to continue discussion. The program also provides a growth opportunity for the Interns, many of whom continue to pursue academic or professional interests related to their experiences teaching about Jewish heritage and the Holocaust. Interns receive a stipend and are reimbursed for travel expenses. Lodging in New York City is provided during the training period, if necessary. Students of all backgrounds are encouraged to apply. The semester-long program is designed for college and graduate students from a variety of fields and backgrounds. The ideal candidate will have a desire to learn and educate; an appreciation for museums; and an ability to work well with others. Applicants must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program in NY, NJ, CT, PA, RI or MA. The application deadline for the fall semester is April 1 and the deadline for the spring application is November 1st. Go to www.mjhnyc.org/lipper to apply. This program is made possible through the generous support of the EGL Charitable Foundation with support from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany: Rabbi Israel Miller Fund for Shoah Research, Documentation and Education, the David Himelberg Foundation in memory of David and Rose Himelberg, and the Sue Wilder Charitable Fund at Our Fund, Inc.

Welcome to Remember the Women Institute

Women, Theatre, and the Holocaust International Initiative
Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Yesterday's invitation to AHO from National Jewish Theater Foundation to participate in an inaugural event of dramatic Remembrance Readings is a welcome coincidence for us at Remember the Women Institute. For months, we have designated that date to inaugurate our Educational Unit on Women, Theatre, and the Holocaust.

In commemoration of Yom HaShoah, on Monday evening, 7:00 PM, April 13, 2015, we are presenting an evening of Women, Theatre, and the Holocaust, featuring theatrical excerpts, the launch of an educational unit, and a panel discussion. The event will take place at Center for Jewish History, 15 West 16th Street, New York City, in cooperation with American Jewish Historical Society and All About Jewish Theatre - The Holocaust Theatre Online Collection, an Israel-based organization. We would be pleased to also have our event considered as part of this initiative by National Jewish Theater Foundation.

The Educational Unit on Women, Theatre, and the Holocaust (to be continually updated) will be available after April 13 at www.rememberwomen.org. It will also be a feature of a virtual Holocaust Theatre On-line Collection encyclopedia, part of the work of All About Jewish Theatre, scheduled for release in 2016.
We believe that teaching about theatre and the Holocaust is an important way to augment memorialization.

Shalom,
Rochelle G. Saidel, Founder and Executive Director, Remember the Women Institute
