Or Tzedek: Teen Institute for Social Justice

Or Tzedek: Jewish Teen Institute for Social Justice is a unique immersive experience that gives teens from across the country the opportunity to learn about and take action on current social justice campaigns. Or Tzedek gives teens a Jewish framework to explore their social justice identities and gives them the tools and inspiration to build a better world.

Or Tzedek takes the value of tikkun olam and dives deep. Participants will come away with an in depth understanding of systemic issues, concrete tools to organize their communities for social change, and a closer relationship to Judaism in the real world. Teens live together and explore the city of Chicago, take action on issues like gun violence, immigration, police accountability, labor rights, food justice and more with local leaders on the forefront of activism, and engage in spiritual learning and Shabbat practice around justice. Or Tzedek is open to incoming and current high school students. 

Cost: $1600 - Full and partial scholarship is available - to request, email hannaharwe@jcua.org
