Langhorne’s Felicia Alexander was one of 21 teachers from 10 states to participate in a Jewish Foundation for the Righteous Advanced Seminar Jan. 14 to 16 in Elizabeth, N.J.
The seminar is an intensive graduate-level program where educators who are already well-versed in Holocaust studies are given a greater opportunity to study more focused Holocaust-related topics. It was made possible by a grant from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.
The seminar included lectures from renowned Holocaust scholars, including Alexandra Zapruder, founding member of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and author of Salvaged Pages and Twenty-Six Seconds: A Personal History of the Zapruder Film. The program was open to Alfred Lerner Fellows, educators who have already attended the JFR Summer Institute for Teachers.
Alexander has been a teacher in the East Windsor School District in East Windsor, N.J., since 2001, where she has taught social studies, world studies and U.S. history. She previously was a faculty member at Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., where she was an instructor of English as a second language.
Alexander is an editor of Chronicles, a publication of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Philadelphia.
