Review for JOIN FOR JUSTICE, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I had the honor of being a JOI Fellow during the '07-'08 Fellowship year. It would not be an overstatement to say that doing JOI was one the best decisions that I have ever made. Not only did I learn an incredible array of practical tools to do better social justice work I met an incredible array of people and was transformed Jewishly. During my fellowship year we were trained by some of the most thoughtful and talented organizers and Jewish leaders that I have ever come across. I have been able to use the things I learned at every turn in my work as a community organizer and had my Jewish identity strengthened in the process. As an active member of the JOI alumni community I continue to learn a lot from my relationship with JOI and I continue to grow as a Jew and as a person.

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

the wonderful community it built for me and the new skills it taught me.

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

incredibly dedicated and incredibly talented.

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

move to other areas of the country and transform other Jewish communities. It could also help establish similar programs in other non-Jewish communities.
