On1Foot: a partnership with American Jewish World Service (AJWS)

Yahel is excited to announce that we are partnering with American Jewish World Service to bring you a new and improved On1Foot! On June 1st, a week before Shavuot, the popular social justice text-sharing site will relaunch with more resources and improvements suggested by users like you. As Shavuot inspires you to engage with Torah with renewed energy, we hope you’ll visit On1Foot to help apply the wisdom of our tradition to your pursuit of social justice.

The new and improved On1Foot will allow you to:

Search and browse more than 1,000 biblical, rabbinic and contemporary Jewish texts related to social justice themes, all of which are fully translated and paired with thoughtful discussion questions
Access hundreds of divrei Torah and prepared text studies, each tagged by age level and social justice topic
Create custom source sheets using texts from the site
Connect to a growing community looking to Jewish texts to engage with social justice

On1Foot is a project of American Jewish World Service, in partnership with Areyvut, Avodah, Big Green Jewish, Hazon, Hillel, Jewcology, Jewish Aid Australia, Jewish Women’s Archive, Jews United for Justice, Keshet, Mechon Hadar, NECHAMA, Religious Action Center, Repair the World, Tzedek, Uri l’Tzedek, and Yahel – Israel Service Learning.
