Legacy HEW Symposium »

Sunday, November 6, 2016 - thank you for joining us for the Neuberger's annual HEW symposium for young professionals, featuring engaging ways to consider the theme, including workshops, survivor testimony, discussion, and a keynote. Participants in their 20s and 30s consider different perspectives of Holocaust education and remembrance. 

Yom Hashoah »

This program offers a compelling commemoration opportunity for young professionals to learn and remember on Yom Hashoah, May 5. Presented in partnership with UJA Young Leaders at Denton's. Registration now open.

The Book Club »

The Book Club will read 4 Holocaust-themed books in one year. Participate through a blog (coming soon) - share reading progress, discussion questions, and relevant resources. When each quarter ends, we'll host a public program with a speaker, film or thematic connection and meet to discuss the book together. This year, the Book Club will focus on books that explore relationships between Jews and non-Jews in different countries during the Holocaust.

Vienna Trip for Young Professionals »

Experience Jewish Life in Vienna is a unique trip for young professionals to learn about the city's past, experience its present, and dialogue about the future. Subtitled “Past, Present and Future,” the study tour’s mission in bringing young professionals from Canada is to experience Vienna’s current, thriving, dynamic Jewish community in the context of the city’s dark past while dialoguing with community members, civic leaders, academics, experts and peers about the future.

Focusing on the Holocaust & antisemitism in France, join us for film screenings and related lectures.
