ADL: Anti-Defamation League
From October through Chanukah (the end of December), any bills or coins place in the tzedakah box in the front lobby will go to support the ADL (Anti-Defamation League). ADL is a leading anti-hate organization founded in 1913 in response to an escalating climate of anti-Semitism and bigotry. Its timeless mission is to protect Jews, to secure justice and fair treatment for all people, to expose extremism and deliver anti-bias education. It is a group that stands up against hate by collaborating with others to build a world in which no group or individual suffers from bias, discrimination or hate and where anti-Jewish hate is eliminated. For more information go to www.adl.org.
We ask you to consider dedicating a themed space in our indoor play space or making a general donation.
Your support at any level is greatly appreciated. All donors dedicating a space will be recognized with their name on a plaque.

Love is Stronger than Hate: A True Story of How to Win Over an Antisemite
MLK Jr. Day - January 20, 7:30 pm
Speaker: David Abitbol
Come to this special speaker who will wrap up our Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service with remarks about how he influenced Megan Phelps-Roper, the granddaughter of the founder of the antisemitic and anti-gay Westboro Baptist church to abandon the church and dedicate her life to kindness, righteousness and an embrace of human dignity. The story is so compelling that it is being made into a movie starring Reese Witherspoon, but you will want to hear it directly from the man who helped change the direction of someone’s life and who showed how love is stronger than hate.
Founder and Editor of Jewlicious.com, one of the internet’s oldest, and edgiest Jewish blogs, David is a Canadian-born Israeli who offers an alternative means and methodology of communication that fosters more effective dialogue through an emphasis on shared humanity, good intentions and mutual respect, all firmly rooted in Jewish tradition, values and unity.
David will inspire us to move beyond divisive and often hurtful discourse to real engagement with others – even those with whom we strongly disagree.
