Project Shema is an independent nonprofit organization that 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 progressive spaces and 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.
Project Shema is a fiscally sponsored project of FJC, a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization, and all contributions are fully tax deductible. For more information visit: https://www.projectshema.org/
