ADL’s Bearing Witness program to be featured on May 28th Catholic Forum

May 5, 2017 — (Wilmington, Delaware) — The Anti-Defamation League’s Bearing Witness program for Catholic school teachers, will be the topic of the May 28, 2017 edition of Catholic Forum, the radio program/podcast produced by the Office of Communications of the Diocese of Wilmington. The program’s guest will be Ms. Randi Boyette, Associate Regional Director, Education, from the ADL’s Philadelphia office. Catholic Forum is heard each Sunday morning on WDEL AM and FM in Wilmington, WAAI FM in Hurlock, Maryland, and via podcast.

Bearing Witness is a four-day professional development program held each summer at Daylesford Abby, the Norbertine monastery in Paoli, Pennsylvania. The program was designed specifically for Catholic school educators to give them the tools and information needed to teach their students about the historic relationship between the Catholic and Jewish communities, Jews and Judaism, anti-Semitism, and The Holocaust.

The Anti-Defamation League was founded in 1913 to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all. ADL fights anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry, defends democratic ideals and protects civil rights for all. ADL Philadelphia works to accomplish this mission in eastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and Delaware. More information is available at www.adl.org.

Catholic Forum debuted on WDEL in Wilmington, Delaware on April 9, 1939, and has been airing on WDEL weekly since then, making it the longest-running, non-liturgical Catholic radio program in the country.
