AMOS Fellowship: Empowering the Next Generation of Leaders!

 

The AMOS Fellowship is inspired by the revolutionary prophecy of Amos: But let justice roll down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream (Amos 5:24).  This semester long program will provide Orthodox leaders a unique opportunity to take leadership roles in Uri L’Tzedek’s social justice campaigns, learn the connection between Torah and social justice, develop skills crucial to non-profit work, and create community by connecting with a group of passionate and like-minded peers.
