CHJ, which meets at Unity, 3023 Proctor Road, Sarasota, will introduce Sarah Wertheimer, Executive Director of Embracing Our Differences (EOD) and Bernadette Bennett, Ph.D., Director of Curriculum and Liaison, in the Sarasota Schools.  They will discuss how EOD grew from a local project asking students to think about intolerance in local exhibits. This year, art work was received from 11,791 people from around the world plus Sarasota students.  Year-round work by our teachers has 'impacted' more than 2.7 million people since it's inception in 2004 of which The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee was involved.  EOD inspired Israel to hold its own program annually.  

Special guest soloist, Devon Chiodo, majoring in Music and Special Ed, is also part of the program.  Free and open to the public. For further information, email www.CHJSarasota or call 941-929-7771,
