We believe that education is the key to fighting hate that leads to genocide.

That's why we created CHAIM - a traveling museum for schools, congregations, and communities around the Bay Area.

WHAT OUR VISITORS SAY

CHAIM contains a wealth of information for students and adults alike. We had 7th graders and their parents, 9th graders and adults tour the exhibit. Participants were totally engaged with the material, stopping to read long passages to understand the events. The bold headlines and highlighting draw participants’ eyes to major topics giving them a starting place to their learning. Accompanying materials hit the highlights. There are activities for different learning types including those who learn best from pictures, articles and books.

Each group that toured the museum came away with new facts and understandings of a wide variety of topics from life before the war, events that led up to the war, and what we can do living in our present. This is a wonderful exhibit and I cannot wait to book it for next year and present it to an even wider audience in my community. Highly recommend.
