Anti-Defamation League makes anti-Semitism presentation in Elmsford
Students at an Elmsford high school are getting a valuable lesson about anti-racism and tolerance.
Representatives from the Anti-Defamation League gave a lecture to ninth- and tenth-graders yesterday at Alexander Hamilton High School, presenting a graphic interactive display. The program attempted to dispel the many myths and lies commonly told about the Jewish people.
The presenters said they tried to raise awareness about greater tolerance in the community.
"They get to learn about graphic novels and hopefully we give them a little bit of a window into how many different people from different places can peel away the layers of history to get better understanding," one of the presenters said.
The traveling exhibit was sponsored by the Elmsford Authors Fund.
