AJWS’s Global Justice Fellowship is a selective program designed to inspire, educate, and train American rabbis to become national advocates for human rights in order to affect U.S. policy and advance our mission to build a more just world for all.
The fellowship will run from October 2018 to April 2019, with:
- Orientation in New York City – November 5 – 6, 2018
- International Travel to Guatemala – January 13 – 20, 2019
- Advocacy in Washington, DC – March 11 – 13, 2019
The six-month-long fellowship includes a seven-day educational trip to Guatemala, followed by the opportunity to advocate for policy change in Washington, D.C. Participants experience the power of grassroots efforts to overcome injustice and then use their moral authority to impact national decision-makers and inspire their own communities to take action for social justice. The fellowship is open to all North American rabbis who possess the potential to provide outstanding leadership in shaping the future of the American Jewish community’s commitment to global justice.
This program is highly subsided by generous donors. Fellows will pay a sliding scale registration fee of $180 – $540, plus the cost of visas, vaccinations, medications, health and travel insurance, and some meals.
The application for this year is now closed. We will begin accepting applications for next year’s cohort in Spring 2019. For more information, please contact Joseph Gindi.
