The #ShineALight Initiative

This Chanukah, The Jewish Education Project is proud to invite you to join us in shining a light on antisemitism, and lighting up Jewish joy together with our candles. 

Shine A Light is a national initiative to illuminate the dangers of antisemitism through education, community partnerships, workplace engagement and community advocacy. Shine A Light draws from the inspiration of Chanukah, the Festival of Lights, and seeks to catalyze conversations within and across communities, so that people will better understand what constitutes antisemitism and take steps to respond.

The Jewish Education Project is a proud content partner of the #ShineALight Initiative and is delighted to provide free educational materials to parents, educators, and learners. With content designed for children early childhood through high school, and for the home as well as schools and informal learning settings, there’s a way for everyone to Shine A Light.
