No Place for Hate

The No Place for Hate program, sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League, encourages schools to gain recognition as a ”No Place for Hate School” by promoting diversity education, respect for individual differences, and anti-bullying behavior. Under the leadership of two teachers and the "No Place for Hate Coalition” (made up of student members in third through fifth grades), Shlenker students conduct activities to sustain an inclusive school environment such as a "No Place For Hate" t-shirt design contest, Chesed (Kindness) Week, and weekly messages and skits. These activities are closely tied to one of our core values of b’tselem Elohim—the notion that we are all created in God’s image.
