Rabbinic Delegation
Where: Lucknow, UP, India
When: July 21 - 31, 2013
Who: Rabbis with five or more years of working experience
Cost: $375*

*Please note that this fee does not cover inoculations/medications that might be needed. It does include transportation to and from New York, international airfare, programatic costs and food and accomodations in-country.

Since 2004, AJWS has sent more than 300 rabbis, rabbinical students, and graduate students in Jewish communal leadership programs from all denominations to work and learn alongside our grassroots partners in the developing world.

The goal of the program is to inspire and cultivate Jewish communal leaders who are committed to advancing human rights for the most marginalized people in the developing world. By integrating service with text study and dialogue about the Jewish values that inform this work, participants return home passionate about their role as global citizens and dedicated to engaging their own communities to create a more just world.

Upon return to the U.S., participants will join a growing community of talented and passionate rabbinic alumni who have traveled with AJWS. This community provides an active forum where rabbis and rabbinical students are engaged in building Jewish communities with a commitment to social justice.

The program fee for the Rabbinic Delegation is heavily subsidized at $375.

Applications are due Monday, January 7th, 2013.

Please note that alumni of our Rabbinical Students Delegation are not eligable to apply.

If you have any questions about this delegation, please be in touch with Adina Mermelstein Konikoff at amermelstein@ajws.org or 212.792.2818.
