AVODAH has announced the first-ever cohort of the AVODAH Fellowship, a leadership development and community-building program for early career Jewish professionals working to alleviate poverty in the United States. The newest members of the AVODAH network come from a diverse range of organizations, including City Harvest, Planned Parenthood, the Innocence Project, and Bend the Arc.
Over the coming months, the Fellows will focus on community-building, leadership development, and studying the dynamics of poverty, while connecting their work to Jewish values. In addition, they will participate in joint programming with members of AVODAH’s Service Corps, and ultimately, will join their alumni network of antipoverty leaders.
The AVODAH Fellowship is supported through grants from The Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, The Jacob and Hilda Blaustein Foundation, The Brenner Family Foundation, The Dorot Foundation, The Gimprich Family Foundation, The Righteous Persons Foundation, and The Samberg Family Foundation.
