Become an Intern
JCUA's commitment to social and economic justice plays out through its work with communities throughout the Chicago area. JCUA serves as an organizational expression of the Jewish ethical tradition that holds that the fate of one person is inextricably entwined with the fate of all. As it says in the Talmud: Whosoever Saves One Life Saves The World Entire.
