Through its highly innovative and stimulating educational programming and influential social media platforms, NJOP conveys the relevance and vibrancy of Judaism to contemporary Jews by providing a greater understanding and knowledge of the basics of Judaism and Jewish life. Over the last 33 years, more than 1,709,568** North American Jews have been engaged Jewishly through NJOP’s positive, joyous Jewish programs and experiences. 

NJOP’s renowned programs, such as Read Hebrew America and Canada, Shabbat Across America and Canada, Passover, Sukkot and Chanukah Across America. Shabbat and High Holiday Beginners Services and Crash Courses in Basic Judaism and Jewish History, have been offered at 5,154** synagogues and Jewish organizations across North America and in 41** additional countries around the globe. NJOP’s ever-expanding efforts, and its keen ability to recognize the most current cultural trends, have allowed it to become an acclaimed leader in Jewish social media. Every day, tens of thousands of fans and followers are presented with a means to positively and joyously participate in Jewish life through @JewishTweets on Twitter, NJOP’s Jewish Treats daily email, and Facebook fan page. NJOP’s Jewish Treats’ YouTube channel boasts more than two million views. 

Since its founding, NJOP has become one of the largest and most successful organizations, impacting broadly on Jewish engagement throughout the world.
