The Orthodox Union’s NCSY recently led a trip to Park City, Utah, to educate others about antisemitism. During the day-long initiative, called “Wipe Out Hate,” middle- and high school participants spoke with fellow skiers and snowboarders at a ski resort about antisemitism.

They also distributed nearly 1,000 educational items, including stickers, jerseys and informational cards.

The NCSY participants came from Nevada, Arizona and Utah. West Coast NCSY’s middle-school director Rabbi Dani Locker ran the trip, which was co-sponsored by Shine a Light, a platform dedicated to increasing awareness about antisemitism.
