2019 Siyyum Graduation

“Siyyum” in Hebrew, literally “completion,” traditionally refers to the completion and celebration of one’s study of a unit of Jewish text. At JOIN, we honor our Jewish Organizing Fellows’ conclusion of their fellowship year with our own Siyyum Graduation celebration. Our annual Siyyum — now in it’s 21st year! — brings together a vibrant community of people who care about social justice, healing a fractured world, and building the capacity for sustained change. This is an opportunity for the Fellows to share stories about what they individually and collectively have learned, created, and accomplished during their Fellowship year. (See stories from last year’s Fellows below!)

Join us at our 2019 Siyyum Graduation
Monday, June 24, 5:30-8:30 p.m.
Doors open and dinner at 5:30 p.m.
