 As part of their trip Whitwell visitors were greeted by 70 members of Tikvat Israel and Congregation Beth Joshua. The congregations welcomed three eighth grade student ambassadors of the Whitwell Middle School Holocaust program and their teacher. A brief clip from the Paper Clips documentary was viewed and the students discussed their amazing efforts in teaching about the Shoah.  Additional photos from their visit can be found on our Facebook page.
