Repair the World: Act Now

With more and more young adults engaging in Jewish life through meaningful service, Repair the World—the only organization devoted exclusively to this cause—launched its year-long campaign, “Act Now,” offering opportunities during the High Holidays, Thanksgiving, MLK Day, Purim, and Passover in 2018 to address immediate issues and engage in critical conversations.

 

Learn about the High Holidays portion of the campaign—Act Now for a Different Kind of Service—at https://werepair.org/high-holidays/

 As we reflect on the past year, we think about the changes we wish to see in the new one. Volunteering, done right, moves us towards repairing the world. How will you act now with your friends, neighbors, and across diverse communities?

Each element of Act Now will drive people to take action through service/volunteering, engaging in dialogue, skill building, and organizing their greater networks to get involved. Utilizing its highly collaborative model, Repair the World will work in partnership with local organizations around the country to help address pressing needs specific to each community, expanding the capacity of organizations and bringing a Jewish lens to the volunteering experience. Visit http://werepair.org/high-holidays/ to find or organize local service opportunities, as well as to pick up resources delving into the root causes of injustice, the guiding Jewish values, and discussion guides for tackling these difficult issues.
