Kitty Millet receives the Morris Weiss Award for Outstanding Educators
Dr. Millet will accept the award on April 11 during fortieth annual Yom Hashoah service by Congregation Emanu-El at JCCSF.
"In many people’s lives, there is at least one teacher who inspired them and helped them become who they are today.
To celebrate the significant role of teachers in the field of Holocaust education, the Preisler Shorenstein Institute will honor three dedicated educators who would like the opportunity to further their educational development in order to include the lessons of the Holocaust and patterns of genocide in their classrooms as a means to inspire understanding, moral courage, and social responsibility in the future.
Morris Weiss was a founder of the JFCS Holocaust Center. A Holocaust survivor who testified at Nazi war crimes trials, he was dedicated to fighting discrimination and anti-Semitism. In his memory, his family established this scholarship fund."
