With the current uptick in anti-Semitic incidents and acts of bigotry and discrimination, there is no better time to listen to the information offered by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), an organization that has been laser-focused on these issues since its founding in 1913. Mary-Beth Muskin, based in Omaha, is our ADL Regional Director and she is coming to Wichita to share her knowledge about the current regional, national and international state of affairs.  She will discuss ADL's approach to addressing these issues of anti-Semitism and bias and will offer suggestions about positive actions that we, as a community, can implement. 

She plans to meet with the teens in our Jewish community and will conduct a workshop with student leaders at area schools.  She will also talk with school administrators about ADL's "No Place for Hate" program on Monday, March 12

We live in different places. Our circumstances vary. But when someone is in need, our differences disappear. The Mid-Kansas Jewish Federation is here for all people, regardless of background or tradition — to provide relief, hope, and compassion - here at home, in Israel and in 70 countries across the globe.

Federation powers the Jewish community in ways you might not think of. Sending free PJ books to families. Supporting Jewish camp and Birthright experiences. Helping people discover their own connections to Judaism. We help rebuild communities and give families what they need in the wake of natural or financial disasters. We continue to create a safer, more just world for all.
