Rekindle: Black Jewish Dialogue

Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC)

The Rekindle Fellowship creates meaningful social change by bringing leaders from the Black and Jewish communities together for thoughtful and challenging dialogue, face-to-face interactions, breaking down barriers, building new relationships, and collective action.


As Rochester builds a network of Rekindle Fellows, we aim to advance racial and social justice efforts and create lasting, systemic, positive change.



The program is free to participate. To learn more and apply to participate in our inaugural cohort, please click here before July 1. If you are unable to participate on all of the dates of the cohort this fall, you can still apply and indicate that you’d like to be considered for a future cohort.
