The Jewish Students’ Association is seeking students, faculty and affinity groups to run workshops on April 13 at an assembly about the Holocaust. 

An assembly for Holocaust Remembrance is held every two years, but for the first time, small workshops will be held after a short assembly. JSA leaders say they are looking for workshop proposals that involve the intersectionality of culture and Judaism. 

Applications to propose a workshop are due March 23.

JSA president Charlie Benton, a senior, said he hopes that the workshops will provide a much-needed understanding of the subject, and that the smaller groups would facilitate conversation.

“I thought that having that intimate, classroom-size discussion with a student or faculty who has actively chosen to do this will be impactful,” Charlie said. “I’m hoping that people can share some pretty impactful feelings.”
