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.

The Avodah Jewish Service Corps began in New York nearly 20 years ago with nine Corps Members living in a bayit in Brooklyn. Today, more than 20 Service Corps Members serve in New York each year, working on issues as diverse as criminal justice reform, college access, sex trafficking, and homelessness. To date, New York Corps Members have provided critical services and opportunities to nearly 200,000 people coping with the challenges of poverty. In the process, they have added nearly $6.5 million in staff capacity to leading organizations like the Urban Justice Center, the New York Legal Assistance Group, and Sanctuary for Families.
