Hi all! This is Stacy Jacobson, one of the Hillel Engagement Interns at the SIC this summer. We are a cohort of 5 hailing from 4 schools: Ben Ross from Tufts, Hannah Weinerman from Cornell, Ben Halbig from U of Chicago, and me and Marisa Johnson from Northwestern. We are excited to be working here. Our main task is to evaluate and create social networks for Jewish interns in DC. Our engagement journey began last week with our first event: a networking happy hour at MadHatter near Dupont. It was a great success, with over 100 attendees, and networks were brought together from all over DC. We are now ready to take on the next phase of our engagement and are pursuing individual follow-up and events of potential interest.
We are looking forward to two upcoming events: AIPAC's 2nd Summer Seminar Series (Wednesday, July 8) and a Shabbat evening at 6th and I Historic Synagogue (Friday, July 10). Check out the Shabbat details here.
Please be in touch with us. We would love to hear your ideas or if we can do anything for you. You can also follow us on Twitter at JSummerDC09
to find out what's going on in the office, DC, Israel, and around the world. We'll update again in the future!
