Review for Jewish Funds for Justice, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved as a participant of JFSJ's landmark Selah Leadership Program, which trains Jewish social justice leaders in personal ecology, leadership skills, and management skills. I have seen the way that the Selah Leadership Program uniquely takes people who were not in touch with their Jewishness or who were active as individuals but unaware of others like them and brings them together in ways that produce deep new relationships and innovative new programs. The organization has demonstrated a youthful energy and a willingness to innovate, which is infectious.

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

the manner in which it brings together talented people who otherwise may not have an opportunity to meet and learn from others like them.

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

youthful, eager, intelligent, and innovative which is very refreshing in any organization, especially in the Jewish context.

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

be counted on in disbursing it down to local grassroots group that need the funding and do it in a manner that is guaranteed to be thoughtful and strategic.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
