The Repair the World Fellowship

The Berkeley Hillel-Repair the World Fellowship is a partnership that helps engage students in community service grounded in Jewish values and learning. To learn more about Repair the World, read more here!

Students will learn professional skills, gain issue-area education on topics of housing justice, food justice, environmental justice (and more), build bridges across lines of difference, and have meaningful Jewish experiences while serving alongside our neighbors in the East Bay.

Inspired by the Jewish value of action and learning, na’aseh v’nishma, we will explore the Jewish imperative to seek justice, tzedek. In this fellowship, students will be placed with an East Bay non-profit organization for three hours of independent volunteering a week (across a range of services), accompanied by cohort learning at Berkeley Hillel.

The Fellowship Cohort will meet together at Berkeley Hillel from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm the following dates:

November 7
November 14
November 21
November 28
January 23

In recognition of your time commitment, students will be granted a stipend upon completion of fellowship requirements. Attendance at our cohort learning sessions is mandatory.
