Since 2002 Rabbi Jay, through the NABOR program, has been working on an extraordinary student exchange between New York and Berlin which has become an important part of the German-American cultural relations. Education is one of the key components in bringing people of different nationality and ethnicity together. Hence, the 
newest initiative, led by Bill Tingling, called the "Tour for Tolerance", the first of its kind in the United States, is a mobile interactive exhibit within a large retrofitted bus to be up and running in 2018. It will employ advanced technology, like Disney's Epcot Center, bringing tolerance curriculum into schools and academic institutions.
The bus, hosted by Holocaust survivors and educators, will be able to reach and empower 50,000 students and adults annually.  We must ensure that the next generation is educated about the moments when humanity has failed, allowing racism to prevail.
 
Our project will equip both students and adults with the tools needed to fight those who still believe in such evil.
 
Soon you will receive additional information about this worthy project.
Please join us.
