In addition to our issue campaigns, JUFJ hosts community events, learning opportunities, and spiritual gatherings throughout our region.

Through the Jeremiah Fellowship, we train Jews in their 20s and 30s to be community organizers, helping them develop skills they need to make change in the world.

Our annual seders in Baltimore and DC connect the ancient story of Jewish liberation with local struggles happening on our doorsteps today.

Each year at the Heschel Vision Awards, we honor activists who are repairing the world in big and small ways.

Starting in 2017, we have hosted regular discussions on antisemitism and white supremacy in all of our regions. We are continuing to develop this program, so check back for updates in the Fall.

In 2008, JUFJ produced our Green and Just Celebrations guide in DC, and in 2012 we collaborated with other Jewish organizations in Baltimore to produce the Baltimore version of the guide.
