FLU Hosts Sixth AVODAH Fellow

FLU welcomes its sixth fellow from AVODAH: The Jewish Service Corps.

Samuel Asarnow joined NYLAG as a paralegal in September.

Mr. Asarnow’s primary responsibilities include intake, assisting with NYLAG’s Single-Stop program, and advocating in Family Court.

A recent graduate of Swarthmore College, Mr. Asarnow majored in philosophy, adjudicated at two international debate tournaments, and as student body vice-president helped organize anti-oppression training for student government and cultural groups.

With programs in New York City, Washington, DC, Chicago, and New Orleans, AVODAH organizes recent college graduates in a yearlong program that combines fellowships at antipoverty nonprofits with communal Jewish living and study.
