By embracing young adults on college campuses and in communities around the globe, Hillel is engaging the next generation of Jewish leaders: It is at the cutting edge of the Jewish future.

A diverse cohort of leaders driven to fulfill Hillel’s bold mission make up Hillel International’s Board of Directors. Working collaboratively with each other and the professional staff of the Schusterman International Center, the Board members advance the organization with their creativity and passion. They engage in strategic thinking to hone Hillel’s direction, and they generate financial support through their diverse and influential networks. They are decision-makers, champions, and deeply invested donors.

The Board is composed of an influential set of Hillel stakeholders, including an outstanding group of professionals at campus Hillels and exceptional student leaders that bring a strong local voice.
