One Week Travel and Study in Berlin, Krakow and Auschwitz

Interfaith Program in Professional Ethics takes place October 6-13, 2018.

Dear Community Members,

While in Rabbinical School, I had the incredible opportunity to study and travel with a group based out of the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York called “Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics.”  I participated in a fellowship with an interfaith clergy group.

They bring students studying in the following areas to learn about the Holocaust and discuss their role in preventing future tragedies.

  • History: The role of professionals — business executives, clergy, doctors, journalists, and lawyers — under National Socialism
  • Technology: The ethics of the future and the implications of artificial intelligence
  • Business: What does “ethics” mean in business?
    Clergy: The right and responsibility of religious leaders to be ethical educators
    Journalism: Fake news in the age of social media, a 24-hour news cycle and political disunity
    Law: The difference between legal compliance and ethical behavior
    Medicine: Medical care in a time of limited resources
  • They are organizing a trip open to the public to travel to within Berlin and Krakow and to bear witness at Auschwitz.

If you are interested in more information or in joining this trip, please download the brochure (last year’s schedule is included) and contact Katie Zoni, Development Manager, at or by telephone at 646-571-2198.
