"The Town That Fought Hate"

The Town That Fought Hate


 485 second and third grade students from South Jersey schools enjoyed the morning presentation of this show!

The Jewish Federation and the South Jersey Holocaust Coalition thank the Novick Family for their generous support to make this possible.


Based on an award-winning children's book, 

The Christmas Menorahs: How a Town Fought Hate, 

by Janice Cohn.

Both the book and the play recount the true story of how people of all faiths and races came together in the town of Billings, Montana to successfully fight a group of haters threatening the town's tiny Jewish population and other minorities during Hanukkah/Christmas of 1993.
