2022 Boston Luncheon

Honoring Ed E. Zuker with special guest Mayor Michelle Wu

In our radically changing world, where violent antisemitism is on the rise and unprovoked war has again been unleashed in Europe, the timeless and timely lessons of the Holocaust have never been more urgently needed.

Thanks to your support, the Museum has been able to reach educators during the pandemic by reinventing our flagship teacher training event. The traditional classroom program pivoted to a two-day virtual conference reaching thousands of educators from around the world, including a large cohort from the Boston area. Join us to learn more about how the Museum's Levine Institute for Holocaust Education helps teachers demonstrate the relevance of this history.

The health and safety of our guests and staff is our top priority. For the safety of everyone in attendance and per the current CDC guidelines, we are requiring proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 PCR test conducted within 48 hours of the event or a negative COVID-19 antigen test conducted within 24 hours of the event for all guests. Masks will be required except when eating and drinking. We will continue to provide updates on pandemic-related safety measures.
