What is Project Genesis?
Project Genesis is a new and innovative organization, and one of the
fastest-growing Jewish outreach programs today.
Project Genesis promotes further Jewish education about our Jewish roots, as
represented in Jewish sources. Project Genesis believes that this is the
best way to restore self-respect, self-confidence, and an interest in our
own continuity, among modern Jewish collegiates and unaffiliated Jews worldwide.
Project Genesis works to establish a strong Jewish identity, expand Jewish knowledge,
and encourage its participants to become more involved with Judaism and the Jewish
What does Project Genesis do?
Project Genesis has found great success with its network of "on-line
classes" -- a unique program in Jewish studies offered on the Internet. The Project
Genesis Global Learning Network has attracted college students and others from
around the world who are interested in adding computer-based Jewish learning
to their day. Project Genesis educational material reaches thousands of Jews
worldwide every week.
The Project Genesis Host, torah.org, followed suit, and is well on its way to becoming a
major resource for the technologically sophisticated and Jewishly curious. We maintain
our full class archives here for new subscribers, and provide other educational materials
here as well. In addition, we offer information on a wide range of Jewish programs,
speakers and special events, and link our visitors to other sites of Jewish interest.
Are you affiliated with any other Jewish group?
But really - what's your label?
- Jewish. Isn't that enough?
Well, aren't you part of one group or another?
- No. Really! We try to just spend our time doing Jewish learning. Our heritage is the
one thing that all Jews share. Our teachers are Orthodox, so they approach the tradition
from a traditional perspective (which is logical, after all). But our program so carefully
avoids labels and politics that Conservative and Reform Rabbis have actively expressed
their support of the program to their congregants and colleagues.
