Jeremiah Fellowship

At Bend the Arc, we take pride in the American Jewish legacy of taking action to advance justice and equality. History shows that our Jewish values, traditions, texts, history, faith and culture can contribute to solving America's most pressing issues.

The Jeremiah Fellowship gives young Jews who are committed to economic and social justice the opportunity to explore how Jewish values, culture and community can support and further their goals. Throughout the program, Fellows meet together regularly for skill building sessions, Jewish study and reflection, and mutual support. As a community, the Fellows explore their own Jewish identity and support each other in furthering their commitment to act to promote justice.

Fellows learn critical leadership skills while taking part in Bend the Arc's social and economic justice campaigns and advocacy. Jeremiah Fellows are guided and mentored throughout the program by an experienced organizer. Join with other young adults to strengthen your leadership as a Jeremiah Fellow!

  • When I became a Jeremiah Fellow I didn’t know just how much of a transformative experience it would be... I’ve come to know that when Bend the Arc calls, it’s time to say yes, take action and dive in.

  • With the support of my cohort and Bend the Arc staff, I joined forces with other volunteer leaders and proposed the idea of what has become our long-term campaign for Progressive Taxation and the Common Good.

  • I came to the Jeremiah Fellowship to become more politically active and informed. I knew I wanted to have a greater impact, but I didn’t know what that looked like. I came to this asking Bend the Arc for the guidance and tools to figure that out and set a course to action.

  • There's no community I'd rather do justice work with than my Bend the Arc community.
