Students learn about the Holocaust from those who experience it, thus preserving survivors’ stories for future generations. Students work with a professional journalist, filmmaker, and a Holocaust scholar. The screening of the “Names, Not Numbers” is shown at a culminating dinner, which is attended by the participating students and survivors, along with their families.

Dedicate a day, week, or month of learning at Central to commemorate the yahrtzeit of a loved one, to request the merit of a refuah sheleimah for someone in need of a recovery, in honor of a simcha or any special occasion.
