Frequently Asked Questions

ADL In Concert Against Hate is an annual celebration event that began in 1995 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of the Holocaust. That first Concert honored the memory of four individuals who are recognized as “Righteous Among the Nations” – non-Jews who rescued Jews from the Nazis during the Holocaust. Today, ADL In Concert Against Hate continues to honor ordinary people who perform extraordinary acts of courage and compassion when confronted by antisemitism, hatred and bigotry. Individuals who do not stand by while they or others are the targets of injustice, but instead choose to act.

Each year ADL honors ordinary people who perform extraordinary acts of courage and compassion when confronted by antisemitism, hatred and bigotry. Last year our honorees included a couple who survived the Holocaust, a young Chinese American woman fighting to protect AAPI elders in her community from hateful violence, a community activist standing up to protect voting rights for members of the Black community in rural Georgia, and two Jewish college students speaking out against the rising tide of antisemitism on college campuses nationwide. We will announce this year’s honorees this fall, and we can’t wait to introduce them to you!

The National Symphony Orchestra, Gianandrea Noseda, Music Director, will be featured at the event. We will announce additional talent and performers as the event approaches. Please stay tuned for updates!
