Empowering Young Leaders

Social Justice Academy

Our commitment to the pursuit of justice and providing meaningful opportunities for our high school students is unwavering. To that end, we are excited to launch the RAC Social Justice Academy—our new program for the 2020-2021 year to offer meaningful, fun and actionable Jewish social justice education in a virtual setting.

RAC Teen Racial Justice Fellowship

RAC teen fellowship programs are learning intensives in community organizing, designed to equip our youth leaders with the skills to create change in their home communities. Through our fellowships, high schoolers connect with other social justice leaders from across the country and learn lifelong skills applicable to any issue they are passionate about.

L'Taken Social Justice Seminars

At the Bernard and Audre Rapoport L'Taken Social Justice Seminars, teens from across North America converge on Washington, DC for four days of advocacy and action.

Eisendrath Legislative Assistant Fellowship

The Legislative Assistant Program is a year-long fellowship for recent college graduates or individuals with equivalent academic and professional experience, who are interested in Judaism, social justice, and policy. The program is designed as training opportunity for new professionals interested in learning about and contributing to the work of Jewish social justice.
