Repair the World launches “Repair the World Communities” in Baltimore, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh—an opportunity for young Jewish adults to link their passion for service with their Jewish identity.Up to ten fellows in each Repair the World Communities pilot city volunteer, study, and recruit other young Jewish adults to create change in low-income neighborhoods and to engage in Jewish learning.The fellows receive training to be leaders, community organizers, and peer-educators with the skills to inspire others and to understand service as part of their Jewish identity.

Shortly after, on December 15, 2013, the Foundation awards Repair the World its second grant up to $3,000,000.
