Holocaust Center: Mission Statement
Our mission is to awaken future generations to the ramifications of prejudice, anti-Semitism and racism as well as the dynamism of Jewish culture. We aim to foster mutual respect, peace and positive action.
Chai Society: Mission Statement
Through its active support of Jewish studies, Jewish life and programming dedicated to the Holocaust and Israel, the Chai Society aims to strengthen Wagner College’s relationship with the greater Staten Island community and beyond.
Our mission is to inform, inspire and awaken future generations to the ramifications of anti-Semitism, prejudice and racism as well as the dynamism of Jewish culture and heritage. Programming will aim to further knowledge and understanding as well as foster tolerance, peace and positive action.
To advance this vital mission, we will lead the development of a permanent Holocaust Center on the Wagner College campus – a center that will feature both significant physical and digital resources accessible to all for years to come.
These holocaust programs are sponsored by the Chai Society, Wagner College.
