Shine A Light

Join us for SHINE A LIGHT, a national initiative to raise awareness about antisemitism through education, community partnerships, workplace engagement and advocacy among Jewish and non-Jewish communities.

Launching the week of Hanukkah 2021, Nov 28- Dec 6, SHINE A LIGHT will feature programming and events to catalyze conversations within and across communities to better understand and take steps to respond to antisemitism.

Shine a light on antisemitism in the classroom, workplace or in your community with the below actions, one for each night of Hanukkah.



8 Ways to Shine A Light on Antisemitism this Hanukkah
