ADL’S IMPACT ON LONG ISLAND
ADL empowers middle school, high school, and college students to combat and respond to anti-Semitism and anti-Israel bias through our Words to Action programs. Most recently, we facilitated programs at Temple Sinai in Roslyn, The Barry & Florence Friedberg JCC, The CHAI Center in Dix Hills, and Central Synagogue in Rockville Centre.
Preventing Bias and Bullying
ADL has partnered with over 35 local schools with our anti-bias and anti-bullying programming. A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute is a leader in the development and delivery of anti-bias and anti-bullying training for pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students, educators and families. In addition, our No Place For Hate® initiative creates inclusive communities and empowers schools to challenge all forms of bigotry. For a full list of partner schools, click here.

Partnering with Law Enforcement
Law Enforcement and Society (LEAS) is an innovative training that increases law enforcement personnel’s understanding of their roles as protectors of the American people and the Constitution. ADL, in partnership with the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County, trains officers and recruits from the Nassau and Suffolk County Police Academies.
