Russ Agdern

Russ Agdern has spent 15 years working to make the world a more just place, through union organizing, international labor rights work, and political organizing for progressive causes and candidates around the country. For the past three years he’s supported young Jews who want to make the world better by recruiting them to be a part of Avodah. He spends his volunteer time building progressive, meaningful Jewish community in NYC and around the country (Shir HaMaalot, National Havurah Committee, Simchat Torah Across Brooklyn, Shavuot Across Brooklyn, Lament: A Tisha b’Av Service about Racist Violence), playing and hearing music, and living with his amazing family in the little-known town of Brooklyn, NY.
