The content of our programs varies according to the participants and their needs. That said, they all provide actionable knowledge of antisemitism, its history, and how to address it; the Holocaust, how and why it happened, and why it still matters today; and the lived experience of antisemitism and antisemitic discrimination. You can read more about our program philosophy here.

Programs for teachers and students

The Ninth Candle offers two types of programs for teachers and students, both of which are completely free of charge.

  1. Professional development events for teachers. These events are designed to equip teachers of various grades and subjects with materials for teaching the Holocaust in new and engaging ways.
  2. Educational classroom visits for any grade from 6 through 12. Content is agreed in collaboration with the school. Visits might provide an introduction to the Holocaust, or they might provide a “deep dive” with enrichment or extension for a History class. They can also tie in with curricula for subjects as diverse as Art, Critical Thinking, and Literature.
