L’Dough V’Dough is a unique and meaningful program that connects students, young adults, and families with Holocaust Survivors for intergenerational dialogue, exploration of personal narratives, and learning about Jewish life before, during and after the Holocaust.

Evoking the Hebrew phrase “L’Dor V’Dor,” or “from generation to generation,” L’Dough V’Dough invites participants to braid and bake challah or cookies with Survivors at the Museum, synagogues and school campuses. While kneading the dough, students and Survivors share, remember, and bond -- one generation to the next -- in an environment conducive to asking questions and encouraging dialogue. The casual setting emulates a dinner conversation, providing an entry point and safe place for students as young as third graders through adults to learn about this complicated history and engage on a personal level with Survivors in important, age-appropriate conversations, focused on the Holocaust, Jewish culture and heritage, and social action. 

Studies have shown that multi-sensory experiences like L'Dough V'Dough can engage individuals with different learning styles, activate memories, and stimulate creativity and communication.
