Newton Out of ADL Program

This article is more than 12 years old.

The City of Newton is the latest place to withdraw from an Anti Defamation League program over it's position on the Armenian genocide.

Mayor David Cohen decided to withdraw the city from the "No Place For Hate" program after the ADL refused to call for a congressional resolution condemning the killing of Armenians in the early part of last century.

Newton, which Mayor Cohen says has the largest Jewish population in the state, joins Belmont and Watertown in withdrawing from the ADL program.

This program aired on September 18, 2007. The audio for this program is not available.
