The debate over Israel appears to be growing more intense in the progressive movement. At the same time, rising antisemitism globally has understandably elevated fears inside the American Jewish community, making these conversations even more complicated. Consequently, some in the Jewish community wonder if progressives support the right and need for Jewish national self-determination in the state of Israel, and what role, if any, antisemitism plays in that debate.
In the spirit of deepening understanding and building bridges, Project Shema offers workshops to help the American Jewish community explore these questions and engage more effectively with progressives on issues surrounding Israel and antisemitism.
Named after the Hebrew word which means "to hear" or "listen", Project Shema seeks to help Jewish organizations and advocates build stronger bonds of trust between our Jewish community and members of the progressive movement
