About the project
The Kerem Institute for Teacher Training was established by a group of educators in 1974 to train Israeli high school teachers to integrate Judaic material in a humanistic fashion into general studies curricula. The institute was conceived by Jules Braunschweig and Mordechai Cohen, former French army officers who met in a German camp in World War II. It was established under the auspices of the Alliance Israelite Universelle, an organization founded in Paris in 1860 to help Jews around the world. The Jersualem Foundation created the Cyril Caspi Memorial Scholarship at the institute in 2006.
