Review for AVODAH The Jewish Service Corps Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The reason for my ongoing involvement with Avodah is because my participation in this program has helped to amplify multiple songs in my soul and set them into powerful harmony. The song of Jewish community and intentional relationships. The song of social action. The song of taking up the fight against injustice. And the song of doing what’s right, of doing what’s human. I sing these songs loudly now, and with others who know the tune, the words, … the meaning.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

unbelievable. Many of the people I met during my year in AVODAH and who are alums of the program are among my closest and dearest friends.
