About The Event
The Medford Public Library and Bridge to Jerusalem are partnering to bring an educational program to Medford which will increase awareness and promote understanding of the Holocaust and anti-Semitism. The program and presentations will be provided by a special educator and presenter from the organization StandWithUs. Together, we hope to offer a variety of learning opportunities at the library such as films, presentations, displays and a library generated reading list.
