Hands on with the JOI

By Talya Weisbard

Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA), Fall 2003

The author discusses her experience at the Jewish Organizing Initiative (JOI) in Boston, which trains young Jewish activists as community organizers. While being a rabbi and working as an activist community organizer may seem to require different skill sets, she believes that her training at JOI will have a tremendous impact on her career as a rabbi. In particular, it will help her build communities and work to promote productive social change through community.
