Hillel’s New Professionals Institute is held every year at Washington University in St. Louis (WashU) for all new staff members in the Hillel movement. It is an opportunity for new professionals to connect with their peers from all over the world and to learn about the skills and values that make Hillel the largest and most inclusive Jewish campus organization in the world.
Springboard Fellowship applications are open! As early career professionals start their Springboard journeys, we asked current Springboard fellows to share their experiences and advice for applicants and future fellows.
Leah Palestrant (she/her) is thrilled to be joining the Springboard Fellowship team at Hillel International after serving as a learning and development professional for education non-profits for the past decade.
Hillels like Hamilton’s are changing the narrative about finding strong Jewish communities in small colleges and towns. The notion that students have to attend a densely-Jewish area to keep connected to a Jewish community is a tired one. Students from both urban and rural areas have found a home at the Hillel on a Hill.
