The Center promotes interfaith understanding and is committed to education in interfaith genocide, and Holocaust education.  We have demonstrated the deep commitment to erasing faith barriers and dedicating the center's mission in fostering positive interfaith stories and events.

     Presently, the center is involved in three major educational efforts, affirming this dedication to the moral mission of the center. These consist of: 

1.  Dr. Afridi's Manhattan College Religion 110 students helped renovate a Chabbad synagogue inside the Al-Iman Mosque in Parkchester, Bronx.  Please see link for news:

2.  HGI will be continuing a program which takes Manhattan College students via the Study Abroad Program to Venice, Italy for the 500th Anniversary of the Jewish Ghetto.  HGI has partnered with the International Jewish Studies Program in Venice. For a glimpse into the Venice experience, please see the separate "HGI Abroad in Venice, Italy" tab. 

3.  HGI has partnered with SelfHelp, and Yeshivat Chovevai Torah Rabbinical School in Riverdale, NY.  The three partners have created a unique fellowship entitled YHS: BRIDGING FAITHS THROUGH THE HOLOCAUST.  Every month three Yeshiva and Manhattan College students meet with Holocaust survivors.  They attend events at all three centers and will interview the survivors for their final project.
