The Stop the Hate Symposium, sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County’s Zachor Antisemitism Initiative, was held April 20 at Monroe-Woodbury Middle School.

Nearly 40 high school and middle school students from around the county attended to learn about U.S. Immigration policies over the course of the past several decades.

They learned from Joe Nappi, an award-winning educator who wrote curriculum around the recent Ken Burns documentary “The U.S. and the Holocaust,” how these policies affected people from a variety of ethnic backgrounds, including Jews during the Holocaust.

Many of these students had submitted entries to the Stop Hate Contest. The winners were on hand to receive their cash prizes and to read their entries to the group.

Among the winners were S.S. Seward Institute student Pippa Cary and Warwick Valley High School student Ava Gell.
