Guided by the Jewish values of equitable giving (Tzedakah), repairing the world (Tikkun Olam), and leadership (Hanhagah), the fellowship builds individual and organizational capacity by engaging passionate emerging leaders in one-year, paid, full-time positions at social justice organizations throughout the greater Asheville, North Carolina area.
In addition to working 30 hours each week at their host organization, Tzedek fellows spend 10+ hours developing life and leadership skills to help them be successful and remain resilient throughout their careers.
The Tzedek Social Justice Fellowship is more than a job – it’s a commitment to actively creating personal and community change. Through the Tzedek program, fellows explore how discrimination based on class, gender, sexuality, faith traditions, and ethnicity intersect in our lives, community, and society while developing the skills needed to become strong and effective community activists, allies, and leaders.
