Lunch and Learn

What is the Shoah program about and what is its influence on us?

My name is Teddy Friedman. I am in eighth grade at the Rashi School, a Jewish Day School in Dedham. I live in Needham with my parents and three older siblings. We have been temple members for 11 years. Last year I was involved in the Better Together program. It is a multi-generational grant which the temple wrote up as a Holocaust program run by Debbi Kardon and Rabbi Philip Sherman. This year I applied for an internship at the USC Shoah Foundation. In September, I started my work for them along with 20 other students nationwide in grades 7 to 12.

The purpose of my internship with the USC Shoah Foundation is to learn about what leads to and how to know the signs of genocide. Along with the Holocaust we study many other genocides; Armenian, Cambodian, and Rwandan. Another part of the internship is work experience. For example, we have reviewed full length testimonies and used different formats to analyze them. By doing this we help the Foundation find the best ways to get the message of Testimony across to students throughout the United States. Another very exciting opportunity I have done is interacting with the Dimensions of Testimony program which I look forward to explaining.
