About Level Up LUNAR!

Help keep LUNAR's light shining in 2024 with a tax-deductible donation supporting Asian Jewish connection, belonging, and visibility! 

Our Story
When we launched LUNAR: The Jewish-Asian Film Project in 2021, we never imagined that thousands of Asian American Jews across the nation would come together to support the project. To meet this growing need, we re-emerged last fall as the LUNAR Collective, the premiere organization by and for Asian American Jews.

Now, we run virtual and local community programs across the US, inclusive Jewish learning and one-on-one pastoral counsel with our Rabbi-in-Residence, Rabbi Mira Rivera, and storytelling initiatives including our Asian Jewish Haggadah, nigun, and upcoming theatre show. LUNAR continues to expand and evolve, but one thing will never change: our commitment to cultivating connection, belonging, and visibility for Asian American Jews.

How we'll shine in 2024
Your support will empower us to:
  • Launch a national 1-year fellowship program cultivating Asian Jewish leadership
  • Establish new hub locations in Chicago, Boston, D.C., and beyond
  • Expand our Jewish learning with new programs and resources spearheaded by Asian Jewish spiritual leaders and educators
  • Launch our Constellations program, pairing new and veteran LUNAR members for deeper one-on-one connection
  • Plan a national Asian Jewish retreat
  • Scale up our arts and culture initiatives, including our Asian Jewish Theatre Show
  • Introduce bridge-building dialogue sessions, fostering Jewish-AAPI solidarity
Why donate?
When you donate to the LUNAR Collective, your contribution truly goes farther than you know. As a grassroots, Gen-Z and women-led team of Asian Jews, we often face barriers in securing sustainable funding. Your donation is more than just a monetary gift - it's the gift of "social proof", building LUNAR's credibility for larger funders. And if that's not reason enough to donate, check out our brand new LUNAR Collective merch! Order a LUNAR t-shirt, magnet, or pin and show off your Asian Jewish pride. Or, become a monthly donor of $5 or more to receive a copy of our 2024 Asian Jewish Calendar!
