On Sunday, March 19, 2017, more than 700 students and teachers from the Bay Area and beyond came together for the 15th annual Day of Learning. This week, The J. – The Jewish News of Northern California, featured the event in their publication.
“While most high school students wouldn’t choose to spend their weekends inside a classroom, Piedmont High School senior Danny DeBare did. The Jewish teen, along with hundreds of his peers, gathered last Sunday at a San Francisco high school to bring Jewish history into focus.
‘Participation is everything to get the full effect of learning the history,’ said DeBare.
Now in its 15th year, the Day of Learning, organized by the JFCS Holocaust Center, brought together Holocaust survivors in the Bay Area and 750 students and educators from schools in the region — from as far away as Modesto — to listen, engage and learn about the past and how its lessons apply to the future.”
