Classrooms Without Borders

CWB Programs stand out because:

  • We empower our educators and students to experience history deeply, personally, and intellectually;
  • We create people to people encounters between our teacher/student participants and change agents in Israel and Europe;
  • We cultivate a community of dedicated educators who learn together and share insights. This cross-fertilization of ideas promotes educational excellence;
  • We enable our participants to intensify their exploration of their field of expertise;
  • We challenge our teachers and student to examine and grapple with moral and ethical dilemmas facing other societies;
  • We help our participants integrate their experiences into the classrooms upon returning from the travel seminar

Our participants return to their professional environments energized, inspired and motivated to translate what they learned and experienced to their students.

What our participants have to say…

I approached this visit as one of artistic inquiry, specifically pertaining to Berlin's approach to memorializing a vast, overwhelming epoch. How does one turn something intangible into concrete and meaningful art without undermining the significance of the subject? I took away an unforgettable lesson in German humanity: culture, hospitality, struggle and triumph. I also know myself better as a Jew.
