Thank you for your interest in the Jeremiah Fellowship!
The 2012-13 cohort has now launched. To get information for the 2013-2014 cohort, please email Rabbi Elizabeth Richman.
Brought to you by a partnership between Jews United for Justice in DC and Bend the Arc, the Jeremiah Fellowship is an innovative program to train the next generation of Jewish social justice changemakers.
Access a dynamic network of activists, advocates, rabbis, and scholars.Develop organizing and activism skills in a Jewish context.Empower yourself through in-depth training in professional and leadership skills.Expand your knowledge of what Jewish texts, traditions, and history have to say about putting values into action.Explore DC through the lens of justice and Judaism.Build a lasting community of friends, colleagues, and mentors.
During this nine-month program, Fellows come together twice monthly to learn different models of putting values into action, for intimate conversations with leaders in Washington's Jewish and activist worlds, and for intensive study of Jewish texts and traditions. Two weekend retreats during the program deepen participants' skills and their sense of the Fellowship community. Participants leave the Fellowship with skills in community organizing, leadership, activism, grassroots fundraising, and other important skills, better equipped to pursue their own volunteer work and careers in the social justice field.
Jeremiah Fellows are:
- Dynamic and engaged young Jews (approximately ages 25-35)
- Already volunteer leaders or have leadership potential
- Passionate about making our community better by learning about and acting on local justice issues
- Actively interested in building community
- Committed to using skills gained through the Fellowship
Applications will become available in May 2013 for the 2013-14 cohort.
