bridges through understanding

Project Shema is a training and support organization focused on addressing contemporary antisemitism with an emphasis on how anti-Jewish ideas and implicit biases can be carried alongside conversations about Israel and Palestine.


Built by progressive Jews, our programs focus on depolarizing difficult conversations around anti-Jewish harm to strengthen allyship for and within the Jewish community.

The impact of Project Shema

"After Project Shema, I finally feel like I can see some hope"

I have felt so unsafe since October 7th and each day has gotten progressively worse. Watching my peers, colleagues and friends being consumed by fear, worry and trauma has been incredibly difficult. I have to admit it has been hard to see any way out of the situation we are currently in.


After attending Project Shema's session, I finally feel like I can see some hope. I cannot express my gratitude for this enough. I can feel the energy shifting away from fear and leaning towards empowerment and agency.
