Siyyum ~ Graduation 2017

(Pictured above: The 2016-17 Jewish Organizing Fellows.)

“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’ completion of their fellowship year with our own Siyyum celebration. Our annual Siyyum 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 each Fellow to share stories about what they individually and collectively have learned, created, and accomplished during their Fellowship year. (See below for videos and pictures from last year!)

Please join us at our
2017 Siyyum
