“To go from the darkest chapter of human history to creating the prospect of a brighter future through community based education and remembrance – that is our urgent task.” – Rabbi Bulka

CARLETON UNIVERSITY’S ZELIKOVITZ CENTRE FOR JEWISH STUDIES AND CENTRE FOR HOLOCAUST EDUCATION AND SCHOLARSHIP ANNOUNCE NEXT STAGE OF PARTNERSHIP
After five years of fruitful cooperation, the Zelikovitz Centre for Jewish Studies (ZC) at Carleton University and the Centre for Holocaust Education and Scholarship (CHES) are entering a new phase in their relationship. While the two centres will continue to collaborate on a variety of Holocaust Education programs in pursuit of mutual goals, CHES intends to expand its programming capabilities and operate independently as a registered charity.
The Zelikovitz Centre reaches out to the broader community through public lectures and educational programs, encouraging intercultural and interfaith dialogue, and promoting academic inquiry into the diversity of the Jewish experience. Holocaust and Antisemitism scholarship are central to the Zelikovitz Centre’s mission and it will continue to provide leadership in Holocaust scholarship and education through a variety of programs and initiatives on campus and in the broader community.
The Centre for Holocaust Education and Scholarship is a community-based organization that promotes knowledge and understanding of the history and legacy of the Holocaust to all Canadians. CHES brings together academics, educators and their students, survivors and their children, diplomats, community members, local and international Holocaust Centres and museums, all levels of government, and other partners. CHES offers year-round programming designed to combat prejudice and racism and promote respect for diversity, social justice, and human rights.
The Zelikovitz Centre and the Centre for Holocaust Education and Scholarship both are looking forward to future collaboration.
