We believe that service in support of social change is vital to a flourishing Jewish community and an inspired Jewish life.

Repair is building a national Jewish service movement that mobilizes young adults to serve in their communities, catalyzes service through deep partnerships within Jewish communal organizations, and inspires people to take action through time-bound thematic national service campaigns, digital engagement, and service. Our mission provides volunteers with an increased connection to meaningful service and learning as a Jewish value, builds capacity for nonprofit partners to meet their missions, and deepens connections across lines of difference.

Our Boston program launched in the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, initially starting with the Repair the World service corps.  Since that time, Repair the World Boston has grown, launching our fellowship program in the summer of 2022 and is excited to begin offering a full range of teen service opportunities in the year ahead.
