Avodah believes that Jewish leaders have the power to help change our country for the better. For the past 23 years, Avodah has built a vast network of Jewish leaders who have come through our programs and now lead communities across the country, created a robust educational curriculum with which we have reached tens of thousands in the broader community, and developed an analysis of social justice issues through a Jewish lens.
We train and support emerging and current leaders with the tools, knowledge, and networks they need to contribute their skills and passion to advancing social justice across the country and deepen the fabric of our diverse Jewish communities. Avodah’s Jewish Service Corps, Justice Fellowship, Alumni Network, and Institute for Social Change have sparked thousands of Jewish leaders to do justice work, added millions of dollars in critical staff capacity to anti-poverty organizations, and helped strengthen Jewish life in the United States.
