Embrace Harlem – Shabbat Stories

Embrace Harlem is developing a youth multimedia learning program called “Shabbat Stories” that focuses on expanding understandings of Jewish identity through community storytelling. The project will recruit a diverse cohort of 10-15 Jewish youth who, through a semester-long monthly workshop series, will learn about storytelling, oral history, and film and audio documentary production. The program will culminate in a live event showcasing the program’s JoC leaders and celebrating their intergenerational family stories. Through this program, Embrace Harlem seeks to build stronger connections with and support for JoC youth and their families, while also uplifting and highlighting their stories and connection to Jewish life in Harlem and more broadly.


This grant was stewarded by the JoCI Philanthropy Fellows.
