INSIGHT through Education -

Remember the Past Invest in the Future
Our community programming arm, inSIGHT’s I•SERIES, is back with a very strong line-up of programs. Our goal is to really expand our inSIGHT’s exposure throughout the county.

inSIGHT’s mission is to fund educational grants and programming for teachers and students of Palm Beach County and surrounding communities: to inspire and teach lessons learned from the Holocaust and genocides worldwide, to recognize and oppose hatred, antisemitism and bigotry and to encourage acceptance and respect for all.

inSIGHT was established in 2010 to help fund Holocaust education mandated by Florida Statute 1003-42. In 2020, the passage of HB1213 added antisemitism to the instruction regarding the history of the Holocaust.
