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

Rating: 4 stars  

My primary contact with JFSJ is as a participant in the Selah Leadership Program. Selah is incredibly high quality program that both creates community, builds individual skills and helps people to envision their work as part of a broader social justice movement. This is hard to accomplish together. I stayed invovled as a volunteer organizer for Selah and am always impressed by four main elements of the work: thoughtful, inclusive, pushing to a deeper level and organized. My other interaction was years ago as a grantseeker and I remember not always being clear on why they were attracted to certain social justice organizations and not others (we didn't get funded!) I hope to stay involved--JFSJ has been excellent at convening powerful and creative groups of people committed to justice and change.

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

consistent, caring, focused on including many points of view, able to combine work and fun and creative.
