Our Impact

Repair the World’s Jewish service movement mobilizes Jews and their communities to serve at the intersection of Jewish values and social change.

Service and learning grounded in Jewish values are more critical than ever to meet pressing local needs, provide capacity for nonprofits, and build thriving communities across the country. Our Jewish communities have an imperative to show up boldly and live out our values alongside our neighbors through service.

Our Approach to Service

We believe service in support of social change is vital to a flourishing Jewish community and inspired Jewish life. Through service paired with Jewish learning and issue-area education, we educate volunteers about systemic injustice and ignite a long-term commitment to service rooted in Jewish values.

What our Communities are Saying

We dedicated 100,273 acts of service and learning to partners last year. Each time a person volunteers or learns with Repair, we call that an act of service and learning.

91%

of Repair corps members said Repair gave them an opportunity to do good in the world through a Jewish lens.

What makes Repair the World unlike any other is the entrepreneurial spirit that is incorporated into serving.

Program Evaluation

Each year we conduct an in depth impact study that assesses the effectiveness of our programs at achieving the outcomes in our logic model. These outcomes center around Jewish and communal impact, for both participants in Repair’s programming, as well as the communities in which they serve.

Our 2020-21 Annual Report

The last year was defined by loss and sacrifice — but also by generosity and resilience. Our Jewish community discovered when we step up boldly to take action and serve our communities, meaningful change can happen. Guided by kavod ha’briyot, the idea that every human is precious, we look toward the future recognizing the uniqueness and dignity of our communities and one thing is clear: This wasn’t simply an extraordinary moment, but the start of a movement.

We’re building a national movement to catalyze one million acts of service toward repairing the world. Join us.
