On June 20th, more than 150 people gathered to celebrate with the 10 Fellows at JOIN for Justice’s Siyyum Graduation. The evening was an incredible gathering to support our graduating 2016 Jewish Organizing Fellows.
(Pictured above: the Jewish Organizing Fellows sing the song, “One Voice,” to open the evening.)
“Our collective voice is built out of our individual stories, and stitched together by the relationships we’ve constructed. These bonds allow us to merge our voices together and call for justice b’kol echad, in one voice.”
It was an evening of inspiration and love, and one which demonstrated how this graduating class has made powerful changes through their work this year. And as the crowd listened to their stories, they demonstrated that there is a community standing behind these powerful young leaders as they work for justice in Boston and beyond.
If you weren’t able to join us at Siyyum, you can watch their stories below and get a taste of their experiences as Jewish Organizing Fellows, and check out our photos from the evening. Prepare to be moved, inspired, fired up, hopeful…and most of all ready to join them in transforming the world as it is into the world as it should be.
