Building a Field: 2010-11 Year End Report on Immersive Jewish Service-Learning Programs

By Ilana Aisen, Anya Manning

Repair the World, December 2011

Immersive Jewish service-learning (IJSL) for North American young adults has been an area of focus for Repair the World since its founding in July 2009. The purpose of this report is to share the progress of Repair the World’s 2010-11 grantee-partners and the IJSL field following the close of its second program year. The depth and focus of Repair's investment in building this field call for analysis and reflection to inform our ongoing work. Repair’s organizational values of being inclusive and participatory guided it to prepare and share this report.

This report includes:
•    Demographic information about young adult IJSL program participants.
•    An overview of the programs that Repair worked with in 2010-11.
•    Assessment of how programs and the field are developing, including IJSL practitioners' points of view.
•    Directions for Repair the World's IJSL work in the coming year.
