Visit us with your students to explore our collections and get a hands-on experience working with primary sources. We are happy to work with you on preparing a visit that would accommodate specific needs and interests of your students.
Or you can register for any or the school workshops we list here.
offered by Leo Baeck Institute and Center for Jewish History
Age: grades 6-8 and 10-12
In this workshop students will work with different collections of personal documents and create a background of “Big History” to see how the individual and the collective narratives inform and enrich one another.
offered by American Jewish Historical Society
Age: grades 5 and up2
Students will learn about Emma Lazarus and her times — a turning point in American and Jewish history. This workshop elevates freedom of religion, immigration and anti-Semitism as core issues in Emma’s time and in our own, and will stimulate discussion of a richer engagement with civic challenges. If you could write a poem (or spoken word) for the Statue of Liberty today, what would it say?
