AVODAH: The Jewish Service Corps strengthens the Jewish community's fight against the causes and effects of poverty in the United States by engaging young adults in service and community building. Participants deepen their commitments to social change and Jewish life through engagement with service providers and residents of low-income communities, emerging as lifelong agents for social change whose work for justice is rooted in and nourished by Jewish values. After participants complete this intensive year-long program, Pursue: Action for a Just World provides a broad platform for long-term leadership in social change and Jewish life.
