AVODAH The Jewish Service Corps Inc
October 28, 2009

Through AVODAH I had an incredible year working with low-income seniors in New York City. I was part social worker, part pharmacist, and part advocate on behalf of hundreds of Medicare beneficiaries, and my work during AVODAH led me to attend law school. In addition to being the spark that I hope will develop into a rewarding public interest legal career, I made some incredible friends throughout the year - people who have supported me through tough times and celebrated with me in the good times.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the lives of real people as well as government policy. Avodah's year long service program is so unique, & fills a need for dozens of nonprofit organizations across the country doing incredibly worthwhile work.

More feedback

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the world. In all seriousness, Avodah is already changing the lives of both its Corps members (many of us have decided to dedicate our lives to work with the most vulnerable members of society), & it also has a life-changing impact on our clients.
