Thought Leadership

Footsteps is an organizing partner and leader in a growing field that includes a community of organizations and individuals working together in support of those who have left insular religious communities by sharing ideas, research, systems, and practices.

Please contact connect@footstepsorg.org or (877) STEPS-55 (877-783-7755) for more information about partnering with us or to inviting us to speak at your events.

Our work in this area aims to amplify member voices in the public square, support member projects that build up the formerly ultra-Orthodox culture, and increase the general public’s understanding of the experiences of those that have left the insular communities of ultra-Orthodox Judaism. 

Yotzim Without Borders

Footsteps convenes a group of international organizations who focus on advocacy, social services, and community building within the formerly Orthodox world in Australia, Germany, Israel, the United Kingdom, and the United States. 

Cultural Competency

Footsteps’ Scholar-in-Residence Chani Getter provides cultural competency training to our organizational partners and service providers so that they can better understand our members, the worlds they come from, and their experiences. 

Academic Research and Conferences

Footsteps provides guidance for academic research related to the formerly ultra-Orthodox community, and elevates opportunities for members to join relevant conferences.
