The Jeremiah Fellowship equips them with the skills they need to have an impact and bring their community together around pressing issues affecting Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area: voting rights, criminal justice reform, progressive taxation and other issues.

Expand your knowledge of Jewish tradition, text and history to put ethics into action;
Developtangible organizing and activism skills within a Jewish context;
Explorethe intersection of social justice, Jewish values, and leadership; and
Join a lasting community of vibrant and engaged leaders.
Through joining a campaign team, mentoring, peer learning and Jewish reflection, Fellows expand their leadership vision, deepen Jewish social justice values, and root their activism in a progressive Jewish context and community. During the 10-month program, Fellows come together to learn about pressing social justice issues, develop widely applicable organizing and leadership skills, and engage in meaningful study of Jewish history and texts. Fellowship retreats during the year offer in-depth trainings in social justice organizing and leadership skills, and foster community-building among the participants. This year’s cohorts will become active leaders in the 2016 California elections.
