Colorful Stories in Jewish History

“Colorful Stories in Jewish History” is a series of short, illustrated animated videos that explore the cultural narratives and identities of Jews of Color (JoC). Led by a project leader, the initiative aims to foster a connection between JoC individuals and their heritage while educating the broader community about the diversity within Jewish family traditions. Through interviews with 22 JoC participants, the project will delve into their family stories, focusing on special Jewish traditions passed down through generations, the role of conversion within their family history, and their perspective on their role as JoC within the broader Jewish community. The project seeks to bridge generational gaps and promote understanding through the power of storytelling.


This grant was stewarded by the JoCI Philanthropy Fellows.
