Tzedek Social Action Fellowships
The Tzedek fellowship provides students with the opportunity to receive funding for a social action/justice project in New Haven while simultaneously learning about the Jewish traditions and values of Tzedek (Justice) and Tikkun Olam (Repair the World) that infuse community service in a Jewish context.
Up to 10 fellowships will be awarded to students involved in a semester-long (8-10 weeks) New Haven community service project. Each fellow will be required to attend meals at Slifka to talk about projects and learn about service in relation to Judaism.
