Volunteer Work with Holocaust Survivors

This past week some of our students had a wonderful time folk dancing with local Holocaust survivors as part of their volunteer work.  Our student Ariella Esterson shares a bit about the experience with us:

“In addition to the classes and internships we participate in as part of our program, students in the Weiss-Livnat MA in Holocaust Studies program have the chance to interact and volunteer with Holocaust survivors. Last week a group of921524_408579795907375_1933088360_o students were fortunate to go to Yad Ezer Le’Chaver, an assisted living home for Holocaust survivors, where we participated in a folk dance lesson with some of the residents. It was a chance for the students to let loose and bring joy to these individuals. Opportunities such as these allow the students a break from studying about these individuals and the history that surrounds their stories, and just have fun with wonderful people.  The survivors loved the opportunity to dance and seemed to have a great time. It was so enjoyable to watch the faces of these individuals light up with the biggest smiles as they danced and sang along to the music. The dance instructor did an amazing job with them, and the students who attended enjoyed the opportunity immensely and are looking forward to returning!”
