Classrooms Without Borders (CWB) provides world-class professional development for teachers through study seminars that take place outside of their professional environments. History, culture, politics and current events are experienced "live" through learning tours abroad.
The exposure to ancient and modern realities from a "first-person" perspective gives teachers a greater appreciation of their subject of study and specialty.They return to the classroom highly motivated and energized, their intellectual and creative batteries recharged and strengthened.
CWB employs the very best scholars and educators to steer and accompany the teachers throughout the program.

Etty - The Play
Sunday, April 12, 2015
7pm Rodef Shalom Congregation | 4905 5th Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213
ETTY is a touring one-woman play adapted from the diaries and letters of Etty Hillesum, a young Jewish student living in occupied Holland. As the world closes in around her, Etty digs deep into her soul to root out hatred and bitterness, and finds a freedom within herself that is unshakeable, believing that humanity is the best and only solution for survival. Etty's words reach out from the Holocaust and invite us to see the power of hope and individual resistance in the most extreme circumstances.

"I knew little about Israel before the study seminar. Thanks to the trip, I now have thousand of images and memories that begin to hint at the many Israels."
