As the culmination of three months of intensive Holocaust education and community service, 26 students from across Calgary and their chaperones travelled to Washington, D.C. from May 7 – 12 to visit the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and other sites. This was the pilot launch of Calgary Jewish Federation’s own Holocaust and Human Rights Studies Program.

Calgary Jewish Federation is grateful for our relationship with B’nai Brith Lodge 816, and is pleased to highlight their generous support for Hillel on our university campuses, PJ Library®, Yom HaShoah programming, and our community’s Holocaust Education Symposium which engages over 3,000 high school students. We also acknowledge the support they provide to many other Jewish and secular agencies. Todah Rabah.

Keeping the beat wasn't the only goal of Federation's JAC-Kesher Inclusive Drum Circle. We celebrated inclusion by joining together our young adult and adults-with-disabilities groups. Barriers fell and perceptions changed as everyone joined in the rhythm.
