At JUFJ, we take pride in the American Jewish legacy of taking action to advance justice and equality. History shows that our Jewish values, traditions, texts, history, faith, and culture can contribute to solving America’s most pressing issues.
The Jeremiah Fellowship gives Jews who are committed to racial, economic, and social justice the opportunity to explore how Jewish values, culture, and community can support and further their goals. Throughout the program, Fellows meet together regularly for skill building sessions, Jewish study and reflection, and mutual support. As a community, the Fellows explore their own Jewish identities and support each other in furthering their commitment to act to promote justice.
Fellows learn critical leadership skills while taking part in JUFJ’s social, racial, and economic justice campaigns and advocacy. Each Jeremiah Fellow is guided and mentored throughout the program by an experienced organizer. Learn how to be an effective advocate and strengthen your leadership as a Jeremiah Fellow!
The Jeremiah Fellowship is an innovative program to train the next generation of Jewish social justice changemakers. Since 2009, the Jeremiah Fellowship has created an incredible wave of strong leaders in the JUFJ community.
