Face Jewish Hate has launched!


As part of CJP’s 5-point plan to combat antisemitism, we’ve launched our Face Jewish Hate campaign. This campaign combines the real-life stories of antisemitic incidents happening here in Greater Boston to draw attention to this issue and a resource center focused on educating, mobilizing, and empowering our community and allies.  

Here’s how you can amplify the campaign and help our community: 

  1. Visit FaceJewishHate.org and share with your loved ones — it’s full of resources and tools for everyone 
  2. Follow CJP on social media and share the stories of those facing antisemitism 
  3. Share your story and encourage others to #StandUpToJewishHate 
  4. Report an incident to ADL 

CJP is proud to collaborate with ADL New England, JCRC Boston, IAC New England, AJC New England, Facing History & Ourselves, TribeTalk, and the Foundation to Combat Antisemitism in taking a stand against Jewish hate.

The Miriam Fund


The Letter of Intent (LOI) for The Miriam Fund’s FY2024 grants will open on Tuesday, August 1. The Miriam Fund (TMF) looks for innovative projects that deliver measurable and sustainable outcomes for the advancement of women and/or girls in Massachusetts secular or Jewish communities as well as in Israel (with a focus on the greater Haifa community), and address one or more of the following areas: education, economic empowerment, health, legal rights, and personal safety.  

Please register to join us for an online information session about the LOI and application processes on Wednesday, June 21, from 9:00–10:00 a.m. ET.  

For additional information about TMF, including important updates to application procedures and guidelines, please visit our website. Please note: To more equitably review all applications from Israeli organizations, for FY2024 TMF will accept only LOIs and applications from Israeli organizations with a primary focus on Education or Economic Empowerment. For FY2025, TMF will accept only LOIs and applications from Israeli organizations with a primary focus on Health, Legal Rights, and Personal Safety. 

Communities of Practice

CJP provides opportunities for professionals to gather (virtually) and discuss timely topics, share knowledge, seek advice, and build relationships with colleagues in related professional areas. We encourage you to invite your colleagues to join, and welcome your participation to help shape these groups, suggest discussion topics, and ask questions.
