Why does it matter?

Where Jews currently appear on school curricula, they tend to appear as victims, particularly in the context of the Nazi genocide. The vibrant diversity of Jewish life in preceding centuries is underexplored, and students are given little context for understanding the growth of antisemitism. Sadly, antisemitism is a growing issue in public life, and while there are some educational initiatives which aim to tackle this, they primarily focus on antisemitism itself, and not on building a better understanding of who Jews are. This is where our work comes in.
