Jackie Goldblum

Jackie Goldblum is a leader in Holocaust education. She has joined CWB after 22 years of teaching elementary and middle school in Pittsburgh. This career path has led her to become a subject matter expert in the complexities of the Holocaust, genocide and current events, Israel’s national security and civil liberties, Jewish History, and Hebrew language studies. Jackie’s mission was to challenge her students to create a more equitable future, by honing essential life skills such as leadership and fostering empathy when making choices. 

Jackie is excited to begin her journey at CWB as the Seminars Manager, with significant experience in program coordination, building educational partnerships, and community outreach. Starting in 2007, she established an annual Holocaust Survivor Dinner, where survivors shared their testimonies in an intimate and safe environment with students. Jackie also spearheaded educational trips which included Higher Achievement Pittsburgh, an after school outreach program for at-risk youth. In an effort to bridge gaps between communities, she highlighted historical similarities between African American history and the Holocaust for the Higher Achievement scholars. This program allowed many of her students to become warriors for justice and advocates for those without a voice. 

Jackie’s awards and accomplishments include winning the International Educational K-12 Classroom Competition at the University of Pittsburgh for MLK Day curriculum planning, the Unsung Jewish Hero award for classroom teaching in 2016, and a two-time recipient for the PA Association for Student Council State Advisor of the Year. 

Jackie received her education at Beit Berl Teaching College in Israel, and Point Park University for elementary education. She continued to develop her studies at Yad Vashem International School for Holocaust Studies, the Facing History Organization, Teacher Leadership Fellowship at Brandeis University, as well as becoming an Alfred Lerner Fellow with the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous.
