Founder & Executive Director
Zachary Singerman lives in Washington DC and attends high school at Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School. After the Tree of Life shooting, where his Grandma attends, Zack decided to get involved in the fight against antisemitism. He found Gen Z Jews: Fighting AntiSemitism to ensure his generation was educated and involved on the issues.
After the Tree of Life shooting and with rising antisemitism, Jewish teens now more than in recent generations need to be aware of the growing problem and get involved in solutions. Gen Z Jews: Fighting AntiSemitism, an award-winning nonprofit, was created to provide a forum for Gen Z to get involved and be educated on the issues and take a leadership role. This organization is different than other organizations fighting antisemitism because it is founded and organized by a teen. Most of Gen Z will be able to vote by the 2024 Presidential election. It is time to get involved.
