It is rare to find a leadership program that effectively balances training, intentional relationship-building, and strategic thinking for the movement. I consistently find that I refer back to the practices that I learned at Selah, consult with fellow cohort members, and experience the benefit of the tight network that Selah helps create. The intergenerational aspect of the program provided a rich learning environment, allowing individuals to share from their experiences and expertise. Selah is one of the best strategies out there for investing in the Jewish social justice movement, bringing people together who might not otherwise meet, but who share a commitment to improving our communities.
