ABOUT THE REMEMBRANCE JOURNEYS FUND
The Morris Rubell Holocaust Remembrance Journeys Fund was established in June 1997 to honor the memory of Morris Rubell, a Holocaust survivor. The Fund aims to perpetuate Morris' legacy and further his goal of fostering tolerance, by teaching the lessons of the Holocaust through school trips and educational opportunities for young people of all races and religions.
The Fund is a non-profit, tax exempt charity under the auspices of the United Jewish Communities of MetroWest New Jersey (UJC). All donations are spent in pursuit of its educational goals. The work of the Fund is done by volunteers and family members and is supported by UJC professional staff. All contributions are tax deductible. download brochure »
The Morris Rubell Holocaust Remembrance Journeys Fund was created to help translate Morris’ vision into reality. The Fund's work is presently centered in New Jersey where Morris lived and worked. Its mission is:
- To continue the work he began in teaching tolerance by educating youth about the Holocaust.
- To increase young people’s awareness of the importance of individual responsibility in preventing acts of racism, bigotry and cruelty.
- To participate in a process in which the youth of today can give each other the gifts of knowledge and tolerance by sharing insights on the human potential for good and evil.
