Heritage and Synagonism:
A Documentary of the 2015 Seminar to Greece

In June of this year, Classrooms Without Borders along with educators and students from the Greater Western Pennsylvania area travelled to Greece on a seminar to discover how Greece evolved from the time of antiquity to the modern period and the unique role it played in the course of Western civilization. The Seminar also offered the opportunity to discover Greece's Jewish heritage and strengthen our synagonism through a tribute to the Greek Righteous during the Holocaust.

In collaboration with the Foundation and the European Arts Center (Greece), a video summary of the Seminar along with the poems that won international distinction in response to the International Call for Competition will be presented. Summary panels of the acclaimed Exhibit on the Greek Righteous, "The Triumph of Morality" will also be on display.

Light refreshments will be served.
