The #ShineALight Initiative  

The #ShineALight Campaign is a national initiative sponsored by two New York-based funders and the UJA-Federation of New York. Its mission is to create a collective light of celebration spreading the Jewish joy of Chanukah, and to serve as a counter-expression to messages and actions of hate towards Jews—both goals more important than ever amidst the global spike in antisemitism that has followed the October 7 attacks on Israel

The Jewish Education Project is a proud content partner of the #ShineALight Campaign and is invigorated to provide these materials to Jewish educators. We encourage you to utilize this education content in the weeks leading up to and through Chanukah (this year and in the future), and if applicable, at other times of the year as well.

For more information about these materials, contact Samantha Vinokor-Meinrath, Ed.D., Senior Director, Knowledge, Ideas, and Learning
