Hanukkah on the Hoan

Thanks for helping us light up the Hoan Bridge for Hanukkah 2021!

With your help, we were able to light the Hoan Bridge every night of Hanukkah in the flames of a menorah. Thank you for watching our livestreams, and for attending our in-person gathering! We hope you’ll celebrate again with us next year!

Shine a Light on Antisemitism

Across North America, antisemitism is on the rise. In 2020, 57.5% of all religiously-motivated hate crimes were against Jews, who make up just 2% of the U.S. population. One in every four American Jews has been targeted by antisemitism over the past year, and nearly four in ten report changing their behavior for fear of being identified as Jewish, or for their safety or comfort as Jew. Antisemitism persists across society in “polite” conversation as well as in explicitly dangerous and insidious forms, and typically tracks with broader patterns of discrimination, progressions of violence, and the fraying of democracy.

Throughout the eight days of Hanukkah, Shine A Light will illuminate modern forms of antisemitism and inspire awareness and action to fight it at every turn across America and Canada—in workplaces, schools and campuses, and online.
