Review for JOIN FOR JUSTICE, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a JOI alumnus (05-06). JOI is an incredible organization! I gained so much as a fellow, both personally and professionally, that I still seek to give back. I am currently a buddy to a current JOI fellow and co-chair of the PR committee. JOI has changed the face of progessive Jewish Boston. JOI fellows and alums are deeply involved in local social change work in Jewish communities and beyond.

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

their commitment to training young Jewish professionals to become leaders in social justice movements and organizations.

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

AMAZING!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

Role:  Volunteer & I am a peer mentor and serve as co-chair of the PR committee.

Review for KESHET INC, Jamaica Plain, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I love Keshet--they are doing amazing work both locally in Boston and nationally. Keshet is at the forefront of the civil rights battles of ours time: equal marriage and transgender equality.

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

opportunities for political action.

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

amazing people!

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

expand its reach across the country and set up local affiliates in states across the country

Ways to make it better...

they had more resources to do their great work.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding, funding, funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

funding is always a challenge for non-profits that rely on donors and foundation support. Keshet has done a good job of building a diverse funding base.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

Role:  Donor & I am a Keshet member and donor.
