This project is essential to our development of programs that ensure the lessons of the Holocaust are relevant for the student of today. Armed with this knowledge, we will develop educator workshops and student programs that are responsive to the extremist online activities being used to spread hate and radicalize youth.

— Dara Solomon, Executive Director of the Neuberger Education Centre

At the conclusion of the National Summit on Antisemitism in late July, UJA’s Sarah & Chaim Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre received $340,000 grant from Canadian Heritage to fund the 18-month Online Hate Research and Education Project. The OHREP will address the distressing surge of antisemitism and other bigotries by exploring how extremist online culture shapes hate and dangerously influences youth and other groups. The results of this research will provide the community with the important data required in the fight against antisemitism.

Online hate is spreading faster than ever before. Too often, what starts with online radicalization can turn into real-world violence. OHREP will launch in September 2021. The Neuberger will work closely with school boards, CIJA and other community partners to ensure that the relevant data is accessible through a website, a guidebook, and ongoing workshops.
