This year, Jack Weinstein, the director of the San Francisco office of Facing History and Ourselves will be the featured speaker. Weinstein will tell personal stories about how the Holocaust touched his life, a generation later, and the impact being a teacher of acceptance has had on him.

Founded in 1976, Facing History and Ourselves combats racism, anti-Semitism, and religious bigotry by using history to teach tolerance in classrooms around the globe. Teachers and students benefit from resources from Facing History and Ourselves to help them find new ways to confront the difficult issues of the past and present.

The service is free and open to everyone from all religious backgrounds, and no religious background. A free will offering will be received for Facing History and Ourselves. More information is about their work is available at www.facinghistory.org.
