And seek the well-being of the city in which you dwell… for in its peace you shall find peace.
– Jeremiah 29.7
The Jeremiah Fellowship of the Progressive Jewish Alliance educates and trains a select cohort of emerging Jewish leaders to become the next generation of Jewish social justice change-makers.

Access a dynamic network of organizers, advocates, rabbis, visionaries and renowned scholars.
Empower yourself through in-depth training in professional and leadership skills.
Expand your knowledge of Jewish tradition, text and history to put ethics into action.
Develop tangible organizing and activism skills within a Jewish context.
Explore your city through the intersection of social justice, Jewish values, and leadership.
Build a lasting community of vibrant and engaged leaders.
The Jeremiah Fellowship connects young adults to the city in which they live and helps Fellows become effective and informed progressive community leaders and activists.
The Jeremiah Fellowship expands the leadership vision of participants, deepens their Jewish social justice values, and provides them with a progressive Jewish context and community for their activism.
The Jeremiah Fellowship is a 9 month program that runs from September through June. Fellows come together for two weekday evenings per month and several weekend experiences in the field, and participate in two weekend-long retreats. The program culminates with the Jeremiah Challenge, a self-directed and community-based action project. After the Fellowship, participants are invited to join the Alumni Network to stay engaged, informed and connected. Apply Today. Applications are currently being accepted for the 2010-11 Los Angeles Jeremiah Fellowship and are due Friday, July 16th, 2010 by noon.
