NEW YORK — The Anti-Defamation League said it has given the ADL Americanism Award to Jane and Neil Golub of Schenectady, N.Y.-based Price Chopper Supermarkets.
The Golubs “have demonstrated unwavering commitment to education, the fostering of mutual respect and promotion of ADL’s vision of a world without hate,” the ADL said in a statement.
The award was presented at the ADL’s annual meeting in Chicago on Nov. 15, during a ceremony that also paid tribute to the storied organization’s centennial anniversary. The ADL, founded in 1913, seeks to fight discrimination and anti-Semitism through programs and services that “counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry for all people,” the group said.

“The Golubs are making the world a more respectful place in which to live, work and play, and because of their commitment, they have been able to touch the lives of half a million students, teachers and administrators, equipping them to take these issues into the classroom,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL national director.
Neil Golub, executive chairman of Price Chopper, and Jane Golub, a former teacher, spearheaded a program that introduced the “A World of Difference” anti-bias education program in New York’s Albany region for students in grades K-12.
