MTI Past Programs

Fall 2020 Program

Professional Development At-Home Kits

In response to the pandemic and uncertainty around in-person teaching in public schools, the Bildner Center sent professional development at-home kits to middle and high school teachers who participated in our Holocaust education programs in the past year. The kits tied in with the 2020 Rutgers Jewish Film Festival and included a copy of the memoir Nowhere in Africa by Stephanie Zweig, a complimentary ticket to the film at the festival, an invitation to the discussion with Academy Award-winning director Caroline Link, and snacks to enjoy during the movie.
