  • Description

    When the pandemic hit, many groups that engage Jewish young adults were forced to cancel programming on short notice. At the same time, the need for volunteers who could provide social services across the country spiked. Repair the World took this as an opportunity to partner with organizations working across the Jewish communal landscape to build a youth-driven movement that would 1) increase the capacity of nonprofits doing humanitarian relief work in the U.S., 2) inspire a lifelong commitment to service from Jewish young adults, and 3) be a powerful expression of Jewish life for the Jewish community and beyond. So far, Serve the Moment has catalyzed 93,800 acts of service and learning, and contributed more than 159,750 service hours to 283 nonprofit partners (equivalent to $4.56 million in value).
