Welcome to the special online edition of the Journal of Jewish Communal Service devoted to Jewish service-learning, a collaboration between Repair the World and the Jewish Communal Service Association. This landmark issue features insights from Jewish service-learning experts around the world and around your corner. The entire issue of the journal is presented online. This includes the print edition of the Journal as well as a digital supplement available exclusively on RepairLabs.


Repair the World is thrilled to present the very first issue of the Journal of Jewish Communal Service dedicated to Jewish service-learning (JSL). With the creation of this landmark issue, we celebrate the great work of those building the growing JSL field, expand our collective knowledge about existing opportunities, trends, and best practices and introduce it to newcomers. The articles herein tackle a variety of timely subjects authored by the JSL experts: those who are helping build the field themselves.


This year, for the first time, the Journal is available in both print and online, with a digital supplement of shorter pieces on RepairLabs, Repair the World’s blog, devoted exclusively to providing resources and a community to the field’s practitioners. Abstracts for the digital supplement are highlighted throughout this issue, with the complete articles available at RepairLabs.
