When the Claims Conference began receiving proceeds from the sales of unclaimed Jewish property that it recovered in the former East Germany, the Board of Directors made a decision to allocate up to 20 percent of the funds toward research, documentation, and education of the Shoah. The board made this decision out of a sense of obligation to preserve the memory of the six million killed, in order that the world does not forget both how they lived and how they died.

Through its contributions to leading institutions that have expertise in Holocaust research, education, and documentation, the Claims Conference also seeks to help ensure that future generations learn of the Holocaust. As the Shoah recedes from memory to history, it is crucial that future generations have available the records, photos, and other materials that institutions are still able to assemble today. It is also crucial that the history of the Holocaust is preserved and presented in a way that is meaningful and accessible to generations who will not be able to meet survivors firsthand.

An Educational Professional Advisory Committee and a Research and Documentation Professional Advisory Committee, comprising experts in their respective fields, review all applications for funding.

Since its launch in 2008, Destiny’s Faith and Fate’s: The History of the Jewish People in the 20th Century program has become the only program in Jewish Education that is presently used in schools across the entire spectrum – from Community Schools to Reform, Conservative, Modern Orthodox and Ultra Orthodox Day Schools, as well as Congregational Schools.

Destiny’s Director of Education, Rabbi Dr. Nachum Amsel, has personally visited all the day schools in South Africa, Australia and the leading schools in the United States. Each and every school visited has opted to try this new and innovative program – which is both interactive and uses the latest technology available, to teach Jewish History with a new and exciting methodology.

To date nearly 400 schools and educational institutions are using Destiny’s materials in some form to fit their curricula. Because each school’s Jewish History program is a bit different, the materials are intentionally designed to be modular, and thus, each school can use Faith and Fate differently, in order to suit its specific needs. The schools are offered the first episode Dawn of the Century – 1900-1910 for free – together with its companion Educators’ Guide and Instant Lesson Plans – on the condition that they use the material in the classroom and give written feedback to the Destiny Foundation.

In addition to visiting schools, Amsel has given workshops at numerous Educational Conferences explaining how to use the materials – as well as the theory behind this new approach to teaching Jewish History. He has presented at the Ravsak (Community Day Schools) conventions in 2008 and 2009, the AJOP (for outreach professionals) conferences from 2008-2010, the CAJE conference in 2008, the Torah Umesorah (Day Schools) conventions in 2008 and 2010, The Board of Jewish Education of New York conferences in 2009 and 2010, held each November for N.Y. Day Schools, and the November conferences for New Jersey Day Schools, also held in November. As a result, Faith and Fate is now used successfully in schools in 29 states in the US and several cities in Canada.

Thus, in less than two years, The Destiny Foundation’s materials are currently being used, with positive feedback, in 15 countries in educational institutions across the spectrum.
