More than 400 students at three Chicago-area Jewish day schools wrote letters to the king of Saudi Arabia. The letters were written as part of a nationwide campaign linked to Purim that was organized by a group known as Mothers against Teaching Children to Hate and Kill. “Our goal is to raise awareness in Muslim countries,” where children are encouraged “to hate Jews and Americans as infidels,” said the group’s founder, Molly Resnick.
