The Teen Family History Program
An Academic Family History Fellowship for High School Students
Thank you for your interest in the Teen Family History Program at the Center for Jewish History. The program is currently being redesigned to offer teens a greater opportunity to experience Jewish history through the lens of their family story. Please stay tuned for updates and additional information.
The Teen Family History Program has served over 300 students in a multi-faceted exploration of Jewish history and individual family experiences. We draw upon all of the resources at the Center for Jewish History, which includes a world-renowned collections of books, archival documents, photographs, artifacts, paintings, films, sound recordings, and textiles. Expert curators, archivists, and librarians, as well as knowledgeable historians and caring educators help teens use technology to piece together moments of time and trace the experience of their ancestors.
