Join the Jewish Service Corps

The Avodah Jewish Service Corps provides recent grads a place to build the foundations for careers, Jewish community, and lifelong activism in social and economic justice movements. We're looking for leaders and not-yet-leaders, activists and organizers, challah bakers and Shabbat dinner hosts, teachers, learners, and everyone in between to spend the next year pursuing justice with Avodah. As a member of the Avodah Jewish Service Corps, you will:

  • Build real world expertise with hands-on work experience. Corps Members are placed with Avodah's partner organizations in Chicago, New Orleans, New York and Washington, DC. They contribute to our partners' work on crucial justice issues like immigration, hunger, education, public health, and domestic violence.
  • Develop activist chops and Jewish social justice insights. Avodah's trusted, innovative curriculum develops practical skills, examines the causes and effects of domestic poverty, and looks at justice work through a Jewish lens.
  • Live and learn in the dynamic Avodah community. Home-cooked meals, late night conversations, and holiday celebrations make living in the bayit (house) memorable and meaningful.
  • Access activism, professional development, and Jewish opportunities for life. Hundreds of active, engaged, supportive social justice leaders across the country in the Avodah alumni community help with everything from apartment hunts to job references to holiday meals.

Applicants must be between the ages of 21-26 at the start of the program year in August.
