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.

Avodah first came to New Orleans in 2008 in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, with the intention of working toward long-term holistic disaster recovery. From the very start, we’ve been dedicated to the long view, working in partnership with local organizations to support individuals and strengthen communities. Almost a decade later, we’ve built a thriving Jewish justice community and partnered with 30 local agencies on a wide range of issues, from women’s advocacy to disaster recovery. Our Corps Members have provided critical services and opportunities for more than 25,000 people and have added nearly $2 million in staffing capacity to organizations like the Promise of Justice Initiative and Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center.
