Prior to traveling to Poland and Israel, a significant amount of time is dedicated to learning about the Holocaust (Shoah) and Israel. This preparatory program, sponsored by the Mayerson JCC, Jewish Federation of Cincinnati, and the Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education, is meant to strengthen the participant’s experiences by providing them with basic concepts and knowledge to prepare them for this impactful trip of a lifetime.

All sessions are held at The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education on the campus of Rockwern Academy: 8401 Montgomery Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45236.
