Review for Join for Justice, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

JOI changed my life forever. Before my fellowship year, I worked at a marginally effective non-profit and was frustrated with how slow and imperfect our efforts at change were. Once in JOI, I learned the real skills necessary for tikkun olam, practiced them, and developed those skills as a spiritual practice that connected my to long-ignored Judaism. Now my pursuit of justice is more powerful, effective, and personally transformative. I cannot imagine how empty my life would be without everything and everyone I've learned from at JOI.

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

friends for life. JOI-niks are loving and pushy people that help me be the best I can be every day.
