The Federation's Center for Holocaust Awareness and Information (CHAI) works to ensure that the Holocaust and its lessons are not forgotten. Its acronym, CHAI, meaning "life" in Hebrew, reflects the mission of The Center, to keep alive the memory of the Holocaust through the life stories of local survivors and their families. The Center is located on site at the Jewish Federation and can be reached by phone at 585.241.8637.
NY State mandates the teaching of the Holocaust, and we know that Holocaust Education is vital for creating a just world. We are here to provide teachers, educators, and community members with all they need to engage in this important work.
