Repair the World Philadelphia was founded in 2013 to mobilize Jews and their communities to take action to pursue a just world. Philly Repair addresses pressing local needs through service, learning, and reflection grounded in Jewish values. This work is led by local staff and a cohort of Fellows that recruit and engage young adults to serve alongside local partners, learn about and reflect on the meaning of service, and build a lasting community of volunteers. Philly Repair strives to build deep relationships with local organizations, partners, and neighbors to amplify local voices, deepen the impact of service, and create a more equitable Philadelphia for all residents.
