Predatory lending is a moral issue

Tikkun olam, the concept of repairing the world, has always been important to me. So this summer, I wanted to do more than sit around Phoenix in the grueling heat. I decided to go to Washington, D.C., and do something meaningful with my summer. I have been fortunate enough to be part of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism’s Machon Kaplan (MK) summer internship program.

MK is a unique program where over 30 Jewish college students from across the country spend six weeks in Washington interning at various advocacy organizations while perusing social-justice causes. Though we all intern at different organizations, we come together a few times a week to discuss what we have been working on, to learn about social justice and to put a Jewish spin on our work.
