Engagement is key



January 23, 2019

“The Jewish Campus Service Corps Fellowship changed my life. I had the opportunity to work with incredible mentors, including Rhoda Weisman, who has remained a mentor and friend ever since. I worked with students who were brilliant and challenged me. It solidified that I wanted to work with the Jewish community forever. Today, my job as a synagogue rabbi is heavily influenced by Hillel’s model of engagement and the Fellowship. I use the same strategies for congregants that I did for college students. People are searching for the same things in their lives.” — Rabbi Joel Nickerson, Associate Rabbi at Temple Isaiah, JCSC alumnus
