Supporting sustainable, effective and boundary-moving justice work across Jewish communities

We provide Jewish leaders with the tools, experience, and networks they need to create change.

Two Men

Avodah is building a new generation of Jewish leaders to work on our country’s most pressing social and economic issues.

How can Jewish institutions take on deep, sustainable, accountable, and effective work for justice?

The Avodah Institute for Social Change offers cohort-based professional development, special seminars and symposia for Jewish leadership, and enrichment opportunities for the public to engage in justice issues, anti-racism frameworks, and social change tools through a Jewish educational lens.
