Every Friday, Repair the World publishes a Weekly Torah column featuring the writings of Dvar Tzedek Fellows from the American Jewish World Service (AJWS). The column takes the weekly parsha (the Torah portion being read that week) and examines it through the lens of service and social justice. The results are smart, thoughtful and inspiring. They bring Jewish texts to life for modern readers, and offer ancient wisdom and connections for some of today’s most pressing issues.

Now you can join in because AJWS is accepting applications for their next class of Dvar Tzedek fellows. Check out the details:

AJWS is pleased to announce that we are accepting applications for the Dvar Tzedek Lisa Goldberg Memorial Writers’ Fellowship for 5772 / 2011-2012.
