Our inclusive design aims to ensure persons with diverse abilities their rightful place within the Jewish community, while helping to educate and advocate for a greater understanding, acceptance, outreach, and a pro-disability attitude.
Emma Saltzberg, Josh Sherman, Jake Max – www.werepair.org
Repair the World is a national Jewish non-profit organization, committed to making service a defining part of American Jewish life. The organization does so by mobilizing young people to engage with local organizations focused on addressing the needs of the community through meaningful service, especially in the areas of education and food justice. RTW’s signature program is its Fellowship, for which a cohort of 21-26-year-olds commit to a year of service, volunteering with community partners and engaging their peers. In Repair the World communities (including Baltimore), our storefront Workshop spaces serve as community hubs for service and social justice initiatives.
