What is Selah’s definition of social justice?

Selah works with Jewish leaders working at or playing a significant volunteer leadership role in Jewish and non-Jewish organizations that are engaged in systemic social change -- work that challenges existing power relationships to produce long-term, sustainable solutions to social and economic justice issues. Participants who have been accepted to Selah in the past come from Jewish and non-Jewish organizations that work on systemic change from a variety of different approaches including community organizing, direct action, advocacy, education, social change philanthropy, and arts and culture. Individuals and organizations whose work is primarily the provision of social services are not eligible unless they or their organizations are also engaged in wider policy change, organizing, or systemic change efforts.
