LGBT high school student wins Cleveland Jewish Heritage Museum's annual essay contest


After disease, humanity's deadliest scourge has always been hate... hate has killed hundreds of millions. It knows no season and no limit. It is irrational and it is deadly. It is in us all. And it will live forever - unless we choose to stop it.

The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage challenges students in grades 6-12 to take personal responsibility to combat hatred, discrimination and intolerance by participating in the 2010-11 Stop the Hate: Youth Speak Out! essay contest.

The Museum strives to open lines of communication between people of all races and religious backgrounds by focusing on the commonalities, rather than differences, of all who make up the American story. The Museum has taken great care to reflect upon the results of intolerance, not just against Jews, but against the weak, powerless, segregated and different in America and throughout the world.

The Stop the Hate! Youth Speak Out! essay contest is a yearly initiative that supports our mission to build bridges of appreciation, tolerance and understanding of persons of all religions, races, cultures and ethnic backgrounds. It reflects Jewish values of responsible citizenship and respect for all humanity by challenging young people to consider the consequences of intolerance and hatred and the role of personal responsibility in affecting change.
