On1Foot: New and improved!

Posted on May 19, 2011

Areyvut 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
  • Contribute new texts and comment on existing texts
  • Share ideas and best practices by messaging other registered users on the site- 900 educators, Rabbis and social activists and growing!

We hope that these improvements will deepen your learning and teaching about Judaism and social justice.

We also hope you’ll participate in the site’s interactive features, adding your voice to the ongoing dialogue!
Visit On1Foot today to explore this cutting-edge resource for Jewish social justice education.

On1Foot is also now on Twitter! Follow them for Jewish texts and perspectives on the day’s most pressing social justice issues.

If you are interested in training for your school, organization or community on how to best use the site, contact info@on1foot.org.
