Exemplary Holocaust Educator

Chaya Kessler, director of the Jewish Studies Program, recently received the Exemplary Holocaust Educator award from the group SSI, (Students Supporting Israel). This award speaks highly of how she has gone above and beyond to bring outstanding holocaust education to her students. It shows how passionate and committed Chaya is to teaching future generations in all areas of Judaism, including the holocaust. She was nominated by Sophia Witt, a graduate from the Jewish Studies Program, who was moved by Kessler’s teachings. Sophia stated, “The trip I took to Poland changed my life forever, and reminded me of why we say ‘never forget.’ Chaya played an essential role in my advocacy for the Jewish State, and inspired myself, as well as hundreds of others at Kent State University.”
