EDWARDS — Jennifer Stiebel, a history teacher at St. Clare of Assisi Catholic School in Edwards, will head to Israel with 30 other Catholic educators to learn firsthand about Judaism.

The teachers were selected to participate in the Anti-Defamation League’s “Bearing Witness Advanced: Anti-Semitism, The Holocaust and Contemporary Issuesâ€? program.

The advanced abroad program began last year, modeled after the regional Bearing Witness program, which Stiebel attended in July 2003.
