Jerry Pinsker Will Present Program on Bullying and Anti-Semitism

This Anti-Defamation League (ADL) program, “Addressing Bullying and Anti-Semitism,” will take place on Sunday, February 23, 2020 at 2:00 pm at Congregation Bonai Shalom, 1527 Cherryvale Road, Boulder, and is co-sponsored by Boulder Hadassah and Bonai Shalom.

After working as an educator in the public schools for 31 years, starting in New York City and retiring from the Aurora, Colorado public schools, Jerry is now a contracted facilitator/trainer for ADL’s WORLD OF DIFFERENCE and Words to Action Initiatives. He is also a founding member and current chair of ADL’s Boulder Steering Committee, is a co-chair on ADL’s Education Committee and is a volunteer coach for the No Place for Hate® schools in the Boulder Valley district. Part of his role as Chair of the ADL Boulder Steering committee is overseeing ADL’s presence at the annual Boulder Jewish Festival and working with ADL to bring guest speakers to the Boulder community. Fighting for the civil rights for all people has been a passion of Jerry’s since he was a student in the 1960’s. This passion led him to become involved in the Colorado teachers’ association and the ADL.

Interactive activities during this presentation will examine how these programs work to reduce school bullying and provide students with the skills to confront anti-semitism. During an actual training, such as this presentation, activities are adapted to the audience. This is very much applicable to adult interactions. Light refreshments will be served. Suggested donation of $10.
