Repair the World, an organization devoted exclusively to engaging young Jewish adults as volunteers, has launched a special national campaign, Act for Racial Justice on MLK Weekend. This campaign offers an opportunity to host a Turn The Tables Shabbat Dinner on Jan. 15. Resources will help facilitate substantive questions and dialogue, as well as volunteer opportunities throughout the weekend addressing racial injustice.
“Around the country, thousands of young Jewish adults will mobilize on MLK Weekend to address the serious gaps that still exist in this country because of race,” said David Eisner, CEO of Repair the World. “Jewish teachings and values drive many to engage and help others. Repair is committed to offering paths to meaningful social action based on these rich traditions.”
Act for Racial Justice includes national partners like Moishe House, Union for Reform Judaism and BBYO. Young adults interested in hosting a Shabbat dinner, finding Act for Racial Justice volunteer opportunities or becoming Repair the World Movement leaders (the individuals who create volunteer projects) can learn more here.
