“Justice, Justice you shall pursue” (Deuteronomy 16:18–20).  The Torah is filled with references to Justice. ADL’s mission has not changed since founded in 1913; to fight Anti-Semitism and to seek Justice and Fair Treatment for ALL.   ADL’s A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute:  initiatives offer educators and students important tools to address bullying and injustice in all its forms.

During the presentation we will examine the methods used by ADL, one of the largest civil rights organizations in this country, to fight for and protect civil rights. Jerry will provide examples of how ADL initiatives teach students to Become Allies or Confront Anti-Semitism.
