At Avodah, we believe in the power of Jewish leaders to advance justice in the United States. Every year, we recruit young adults ages 21-26 from across the country to spend a year in our Jewish Service Corps working at leading nonprofits in Chicago, New Orleans, New York, and Washington, DC. Our Corps Members live and learn together in a supportive, pluralistic community at the crossroads of social activism and Jewish life. Over the course of their year of service, they provide critical services and opportunities to tens of thousands of people coping with the challenges of poverty. Avodah Corps Members also gain the knowledge, experience and networks necessary to sustain their work over the course of their lives.

In the beating heart of our nation’s capitol, you don’t have to look far to find Avodah Service Corps Members stepping up for local change. In the almost 15 years since we arrived in DC, our Corps Members have worked on issues like homelessness, immigration, and food justice, adding more than $5 million in staffing capacity to leading organizations like Bread for the City, Housing Unlimited, HIAS and more. To date, DC Corps Members have provided critical services and opportunities to nearly 350,000 people coping with the challenges of poverty.
