The Nachshon Fund is a new program that we’ve launched to support innovative local initiatives led by AVODAH through the awarding of small grants. Our inaugural round of Nachshon grantees represent many approaches to social justice spread across the country, from launching a Jewish community-organizing group to building local alumni communities.
This blog gives our corps members, Fellows, and alumni space to write about their experiences in our programs as they question, explore, and grow into lifelong agents for social change whose commitment to social justice is guided by their Jewish values.
