Review for JOIN FOR JUSTICE, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a graduate of the JOI fellowship program, class of 2008. My year with JOI was the most meaningful, powerful, and informative experience of my life; and one that gave me the skills and passions to thrive in the social justice community. As fellows, Every week we received extensive training in community organizing, worked with rabbis to explore the social justice ideals inherent to Judaism, and worked together on an organizing project which we designed ourselves to strengthen our own community. Since my JOI year I have gone on to law school, where the skills I learned in JOI to build and strengthen a progressive community of law students and you lawyers.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the people I met and formed life-long friendship with.

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

dedicated, passionate organizers devoted to imparting their wisdom and the spirit of Tikkun Olam.

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

Train thousands of progressive, dedicated Jewish organizers to empower communities across America.
