Join us to learn how to address antisemitism and take action towards creating learning and workplace campus environments inclusive of our Jewish communities.

This interactive session will be led by the nonprofit organization Project Shema. This program will explore antisemitism through the lens of social justice frameworks and addresses common misperceptions about Jews and antisemitism. This curriculum will not only demonstrate how this form of bigotry has survived, thrived, and mutated over thousands of years but will also provide a better understanding of the lived realities, history, and challenges facing the Jewish people. There will be opportunities to ask questions and to engage in dialogue on creating more inclusive campus environments. 

About Project Shema:
Project Shema trains and supports the Jewish community and allies to understand and address contemporary antisemitism, with an emphasis on how anti-Jewish ideas can emerge in discourse around Israel and Palestine.

Founded by Jewish leaders with deep ties in social justice movements, Project Shema brings a fresh and humanizing approach to these challenging issues. Named after the Hebrew word Shema, which means “to hear”, “to listen”, or “understand,” Project Shema works to deepen understanding and build compassion and bridges across communities. We provide a truly unique, nuanced approach to antisemitism education for those working to ensure inclusive spaces for all Jews.

Since its founding, Project Shema has supported Jewish institutions and major corporations, locally and globally, to explore these complex issues.
