Spring at AVODAH is a season to celebrate our corps members' hard work and to honor their service in low-income communities. We remember that "Judaism has a vision of earthly justice which prioritizes liberation from oppression... and an unending aspiration for a tomorrow that is better than today." To bring the ideals of AVODAH to your seder table this year, please download our Haggadah supplement here: From Freedom to Liberation.
We are incredibly proud of AVODAH Board member, Rabbi Joy Levitt, and our New York Partners in Justice event honoree, Rabbi/Cantor Angela Buchdahl, who were recently named among America's Top 50 Rabbis for 2012. We thank them for their steadfast commitment to our work and see them as examples of the visionary leadership required to make "earthly justice" a reality.
AVODAH's Partners in Justice events support our year-long service program and alumni community engagement. Our honorees are inspiring leaders at the forefront of a movement for Jewish social change and have helped to make social justice a Jewish priority. They truly care about AVODAH as the training ground for today's young leadership. We hope that you will join us at one of our upcoming spring events in your city.
