Jewish Funds for Justice
Jewish Funds for Justice’s Alternative Breaks provide opportunities for teams of college students to travel, participate in intensive service, meet new people and create intentional Jewish community during their school break. JFSJ develops service projects that meet existing community needs, in partnership with local organizations in Baltimore, Los Angeles and the Gulf coast region. Participants gain important skills while learning about and reflecting on relevant historical, social, and political issues through the lens of Jewish ethics and values.
JFSJ will work with staff of individual Hillels to plan an alternative break experience for your campus group. In addition, we are coordinating a national cohort of students who participated in a Hillel alternative break to the Gulf Coast and would like to go back for a more in-depth exploration of issues and ongoing advocacy for the region.
