Dylan Hammerman and Rebecca Weiss are on their way home from a weekend of connection, learning, and celebrating with almost 200 fellow student leaders at Hillel International’s Global Student Assembly (GSA).
As I head into the last week of my undergraduate career, I’m reflecting on how much I’ve grown in the past four years, and how many unpredictable life events shaped my college journey.
Today Hillel International announced the co-chairs of the eighth cohort of its Student Cabinet for the 2023-2024 academic year. Hillel International’s Student Cabinet is composed of up to 22 student leaders from around the world that provide the student perspective to the lay and professional leadership of the organization.
Each March, we recognize Women’s History Month, and this year, we asked Hillel International Student Cabinet members who identify as women to share reflections on their college experiences, and advice for younger students who are beginning their college careers. Here’s what they had to say:
Warsaw has always been my home. I was born here and grew up in and around the city. It’s central to who I am, and serving the Jewish community here has been a foundational part of my life for many years.
At a time when Jews around the world are gathering with their family, friends, and communities to celebrate the Jewish High Holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, we are outraged to hear and see that a number of antisemitic incidents took place on or around campus on Rosh Hashanah, one of the most sacred Jewish holidays.
Hillel International is so excited to welcome four new members to our Board of Directors! Joining the Board are Hillel International's two student cabinet co-chairs, a former student cabinet member, and a Hillel Director.
Hillel International, the largest and most inclusive Jewish campus organization in the world, announced today the 17 members of the 2022-2023 Hillel International Student Cabinet. The cabinet serves as a vehicle to connect the global Jewish student community, and also serves as an advisory council to Hillel International’s leadership in its efforts to engage Jewish college students worldwide.
When countering antisemitism, you can make significant progress because of the experiences you’ve faced.
I’ve talked to so many people who were and still are actively fighting BDS, and they feel like they're losing. But I always remind them that it’s an uphill battle and that there is light at the end of the tunnel. You can make significant progress for the future because of the experiences you’ve faced.
