In 2017, anti-Semitic incidents in MA public schools rose by 86%.  In the fall of 2018, the Jewish Federation of the Berkshires, in collaboration with the superintendents of all six Berkshire County school districts, and the ADL, launched the World of Difference anti-bias education program.  This program has already impacted hundreds of middle and high school students across the Berkshires and is empowering them to recognize and address anti-Semitism, racism and other forms of bias and prejudice in their schools and community.
