Harvard University, which was founded in 1636, remains committed to the purposes for which its Charter was granted:  “The advancement of all good literature, arts, and sciences; the advancement and education of youth in all manner of good literature, arts, and sciences; and all other necessary provisions that may conduce to the education of the youth of this country.” Harvard strives to create knowledge, to open the minds of students to that knowledge, and to enable students to take best advantage of their educational opportunities. To these ends, the College encourages students to respect ideas and their free expression, and to rejoice in discovery and in critical thought; to pursue excellence in a spirit of productive cooperation; and to assume responsibility for the consequences of personal actions. Harvard seeks to identify and to remove restraints on students’ full participation, so that individuals may explore their capabilities and interests and may develop their full intellectual and human potential.

Harvard Hillel strives for a similar phenomenon in Jewish identity and community within Harvard University and beyond.

About the Center for Jewish Life/Hillel at Princeton University
Jewish Life at Princeton has a proud history, beginning sixty-five years ago with a Friday night gathering organized in 1947 by Albert Einstein.  The opening of the Center for Jewish Life in 1994 launched a new era of unprecedented University support for Jewish life in the heart of campus. Today, the Center for Jewish Life weekly hosts 125 students for Shabbat dinner and fosters 50 student leadership positions, including the CJL student board, 12 affiliated student groups, and national initiatives.  In the past five years, program resources have doubled thanks to the generosity and vision of alumni, parents, faculty, and community members.


The mission of the Center for Jewish Life is to partner with students and other members of the Princeton community to sustain and grow a welcoming, caring, and multi-faceted Jewish community that is integrated into the fabric of campus life.  We aim to make Judaism speak to students’ lives, spark friendships, nurture Jewish identity, and cultivate leadership. Our size and resources allow us to build a close-knit, diverse, and inclusive community that offers significant opportunities for leadership and fosters meaningful Jewish connections and experiences.  Undergirding our engagement activities are six pillars, which comprise the core values of the Center for Jewish Life: Community, Jewish Learning, Shabbat & Holiday Celebrations, Israel, Leadership, and Social Justice.


Our approach to building a vibrant Jewish life at Princeton begins with the ambition of knowing every Jewish student by name and by story.  Over the course of their time at Princeton, we hope to help every student find their own voice within the larger narrative of the Jewish people — on their own terms — but in ways that are deeply connected to the wisdom of our ancient tradition and linked to the opportunities and challenges of today’s complex world.  


With the launch of our Strategic Plan, we are working towards a vision where every one of the 700 bright, talented, and curious Jewish students at Princeton takes advantage of Jewish opportunities that are personally and intellectually engaging in the spirit of the overall Princeton experience. The Center for Jewish Life, with increased resources, is well positioned to achieve its vision to inspire and equip every Jewish student to contribute with passion and knowledge to the Jewish community and the world at large.

Princeton simultaneously strives to be one of the leading research universities and the most outstanding undergraduate college in the world. As a research university, it seeks to achieve the highest levels of distinction in the discovery and transmission of knowledge and understanding, and in the education of graduate students. At the same time, Princeton is distinctive among research universities in its commitment to undergraduate teaching. The University provides its students with academic, extracurricular and other resources—in a residential community committed to diversity in its student body, faculty and staff—that help them achieve at the highest scholarly levels and prepare them for positions of leadership and lives of service in many fields of human endeavor.

The Jewish Community of Orlando
The Jewish community of Orlando has been around for over a hundred years but, really started to grow in the 1970's and 80's with the advent of Disney and the growth of the University and technology community. Today, approximately 26,000 Jews call Orlando home and while they are somewhat geographically dispersed, the recognized epicenter is in Maitland where the Jewish Academy of Orlando, the Jewish Community Center, the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando and the The Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Florida share a combined campus, just down the street from Brown's Kosher Deli (which is supervised by GOBOR, the Greater Orlando Board of Rabbis). Kosher food abounds at Publix and the Winn Dixie which carries a huge selection of Kosher and Israeli products, largely due to the significant number of Israelis living in our community. While geographically diverse, the community frequently comes together for annual events like Yom Haatzmaout and Hannukah. As the city of Orlando continues to grow, so too is the Jewish community. Recently, a second JCC campus opened in the southern part of the city.

Life in Orlando
Conveniently located in the center of Florida with neighbors like Disney and Universal Studios, Orlando is now the number one travel destination in the United States. Last year 31 million tourists came through Orlando's  top ranked airport out of a total of 54 million tourists who visited the area. More than just theme parks, Orlando is second only to Las Vegas in the number of national conventions hosted here. In fact, there are direct flights to Orlando from nearly every major city in the United States.
Orlando has plenty to offer young adults looking for a great quality of life. In 2014, Forbes recognized Orlando as one of the top 25 destinations in the United States for Millennials. Great neighborhoods like Lake Eola and Thornton Park known for their classic Bungalow homes, trendy restaurants, pubs, cafe’s, farmer’s market and nightlife, make downtown living an affordable possibility.


Orlando is surrounded by beautiful lakes, terrific arts and culture and gorgeous weather year round. From Maitland/Winter Park, a trip to the beaches on the Atlantic are just a 50 minute drive while the warmer waters of the west coast  and their famous white sand beaches are within an easy 90 minute ride. In addition to these attributes, Florida has ZERO income tax at either the state OR local level.

About Kent State University and the University of Akron:

Kent State University and University of Akron are two premier public universities in Northeast Ohio. Both attract students from around the globe; however a great majority of the student body for each institution comes from within a 100 mile radius. KSU has a made a recent strategic effort to recruit from along the east coast (and has invited Hillel to assist with those efforts). Kent State is known for its schools of fashion, communications, education and business. University of Akron has a world renowned polymer sciences school. Kent State has been a leader in service learning sending students to the gulf coast for many years and focusing on local immersive service learning projects as well. Kent State is a strong partner in our work and we enjoy being an indispensible partner to the university. Kent State and University of Akron enjoy a healthy and fun athletics rivalry.

 

About Northeast Ohio:

Our staff is evenly divided between living in Akron and Cleveland, but all would agree that Northeast Ohio is a hidden jewel. The area boasts one of the best Metropark systems, a world renowned arts and culture center in Cleveland, a vibrant music scene that brings local and nationally known artists, some of the best public and private schools in the country. Its affordability (and lack of traffic!) is incomparable to most regions that have such amenities. Hearty Northeast Ohioans enjoy all four seasons!

 

The Jewish communities in Akron and Cleveland are large enough to have your choice from a variety synagogues and Jewish organizations and cultural opportunities- but small enough that you’ll soon know people at the kosher butcher. They offer big city opportunities with mid-west appeal.

291525 <![CDATA[Silk Foundation Campus Rabbi - St. Louis Hillel at Washington University]]>  

This is a once-in-a lifetime opportunity for a dynamic rabbi to impact and inspire the lives of thousands of the brightest and most talented Jewish college students in the country. St. Louis Hillel at Washington University is looking for a Campus Rabbi who, through his or her deep well of Jewish knowledge and charismatic personality, will help connect our students to the richness of our Jewish values, ideals and tradition. Through meaningful conversations and transformative experiences, our Campus Rabbi will bring Jewish insights and tradition to bear as our students explore big life questions and consider their current and future life choices. In addition to engaging students in Jewish life, the Campus Rabbi will facilitate and enhance the educational and religious opportunities our Hillel provides; find, engage and help lead students on the periphery of Jewish life to explore and deepen their connection to Judaism; help us deepen our relationships with the Universities we serve and with the broader St. Louis community; and help provide a welcoming, inclusive atmosphere for our diverse and pluralistic student population.

 

Our students are in a period of exploration, being exposed to new ideas, encountering new relationships, contemplating career choices and beginning their journeys to be at home in the world. Our Campus Rabbi and engagement team must engage students where they are at both physically and Jewishly, providing them with compelling Jewish models, and offering access to the Jewish narrative to help them frame their journey.

 

The Campus Rabbi will be a key member of our staff team, inspiring both students and staff to learn and grow Jewishly. St. Louis Hillel just completed Phase I of our reconstructed home directly across the street from the main campus of Washington University in St. Louis, so this is a tremendous opportunity to join our team as we redefine ourselves for the students and Universities we serve. We estimate that at Washington University alone there are over 1,500 Jewish undergraduates. The Campus Rabbi will need to have strong leadership skills and the ability to work both independently and as a member of a dynamic team, under the direction of the Executive Director. He or she will also need to be flexible, adaptable, and able to work toward a vision for the future of the organization - dedicated to strategically advancing our mission and furthering our engagement agenda.

 

What you’re great at:

  • Sharing your deep well of Jewish knowledge in relevant, meaningful and sometimes untraditional ways.
  • Building relationships and finding ways to engage and connect with anyone, anytime, anywhere. That may include people very different than you, and could be at a student program, the checkout line at Starbucks, in spin class, or at an event where you know no one.
  • Figuring out what makes people tick, and then helping them connect with what they’re passionate about.
  • Listening to what people are saying, and understanding that what they’re not saying is important, too.

 

The right Campus Rabbi candidate will possess the following key attributes:

  • Knowledgeable – The Campus Rabbi will be highly educated in areas of Jewish content and comfortable explaining and helping students process the wide range of Jewish practice and thought that exists both in our local Jewish community and the broader Jewish world. He or she will be a skilled story teller, a weaver of experiences, both Jewish and secular.
  • Extrovert – The Campus Rabbi will be characterized by others as having a charismatic, outgoing personality. He or she will be comfortable engaging anyone, anytime, anywhere. 
  • A Strategic Community Organizer – The Campus Rabbi will think strategically about how to reach and impact students not involved in the traditional networks, and will utilize methodologies of community organizing in order to expand Hillel’s reach. 
  • An Informal Educator – The Campus Rabbi will be experienced with the theory and practice of informal education and will use that knowledge to model and teach others (Hillel colleagues, student interns, and leaders of the student groups advised by Hillel) how to create the most effective opportunities for meaningful Jewish experiences.
  • A Relationship Builder – The Campus Rabbi will be capable of building rapport and developing meaningful relationships with a wide variety of students and University administrators. He or she will also strategically initiate, develop and maintain networks of people on campus and other Hillel stakeholders who can help advance Hillel’s goals.
  • A Pastoral Counselor – The Campus Rabbi will talk one on one with students about the challenges in their lives, and provide them ways to understand those challenges through a Jewish framework.

 

What you’ll bring to the job:

  • Rabbinic ordination and a true commitment to a pluralistic approach to Jewish life.
  • Experience working with young adults. Experience as a volunteer or professional in a Jewish organization is a plus, as is community organizing, informal education, camping, or other types of work directly serving others. 
  • A team-oriented approach to work, a strong work ethic, proven experience thinking and acting strategically to reach goals, a sense of humor, a warm and dynamic personality, and an ability to take risks and learn from situations when things don’t turn out the way you thought they would. 

 

As a Campus Rabbi, a typical day may include:

  • Coffee meeting with a first-year student you met during orientation.
  • Working with a group of fraternity brothers on a unique and creative approach to Shabbat to be held at their fraternity house.
  • Meeting with an engagement intern and a student she’s been talking with to discuss a question the student had about Jewish practice.
  • Briefing the speaker for next week’s “lunch and learn” about the population she’ll be teaching.
  • Working with the Hillel staff to finalize logistics for our Passover Seder offerings.
  • Connecting a student to a resource in the community that will help that student pursue a career or other goal.
  • Meeting with a University official to deepen the relationship of St. Louis Hillel with the University and to uncover new unmet needs.

 

What you’ll own:

  • Student and Staff Education – The Campus Rabbi will function as a key educational resource for both students and professionals on campus, helping to mentor and enrich their Jewish journeys and enhance staff members’ ability to facilitate new Jewish opportunities for students. He or she will be responsible for working with staff on their own initiatives as well as organizing and supervising periodic staff learning.
  • Individual Student Connections – The Campus Rabbi will be responsible to build relationships with Jewish students who are uninvolved in Jewish life on campus. This will be accomplished by meeting students one-on-one, teaching in small groups, staffing immersion experiences and developing new and creative Jewish initiatives. 
  • Jewish Content – The Campus Rabbi is encouraged to bring his or her whole self and unique set of skills to enhance the Jewish community on all of our campuses in traditional and non-traditional ways. He or she will help infuse all of our offerings with Jewish content and work with staff and students to train them to do the same.
  • Facilitation of our Pluralistic Campus Jewish Community – The Campus Rabbi will work with our staff and student leaders to foster a pluralistic Jewish environment on campus, including the promotion of a pluralistic approach to Jewish expression through Shabbat and holiday observances. He or she will work with our staff and students to coordinate, facilitate, and evaluate all aspects of:
    • Shabbat services, meals and programming, empowering students from diverse Jewish backgrounds to create and lead innovative Shabbat programming; and 
    • Jewish holiday programming and observances on campus, including but not limited to, High Holiday services and meals, Passover Seders, etc. 

 

What you’ll get out of it:

  • A comprehensive benefits package, including health insurance, Group Supplemental Retirement Annuity (GSRA), pension plan, life insurance, Long Term Disability (LTD), Flexible Spending Plan, generous vacation/sick time, and parental leave.
  • Competitive salary in the non-profit marketplace. 
  • Great professional development, mentoring, and skill-building opportunities.
  • Travel abroad, particularly to Israel.
  • Unlimited paid coffee dates with students.
  • Some of the most enthusiastic colleagues in the entire Hillel system.
  • Practically unlimited t-shirts, Nalgene bottles and university swag.

 

What we’re about:

St. Louis Hillel seeks to inspire Jewish college students to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life by connecting our students with one another and with Jewish culture and traditions through service and social justice, Israel, religious life, and social and leadership programs. Our mission is to enrich the lives of Jewish undergraduate and graduate students in St. Louis so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world.

 

Founded in 1946, St. Louis Hillel serves a robust Jewish student population at universities throughout the greater St. Louis area, and is located across the street from Washington University in St. Louis. Known for innovation, student driven programming and leadership development, St. Louis Hillel strives to be a center of Jewish life and culture. We provide a spirited, pluralistic Jewish community that is open and welcoming to all Jewish students, faculty, University administrators, and other Jewish community members, regardless of their background or affiliation.

 

St. Louis is a friendly and accessible midwestern city with excellent culture, great parks and kosher Ted Drewes frozen custard. Situated in the heart of metropolitan St. Louis, our Hillel is steps away from Forest Park, one of the largest urban parks in the nation and home to the St. Louis Zoo, Science Center, Art Museum, as well as other cultural institutions. Washington University and St. Louis Hillel are also blocks away from the Delmar Loop, a colorful entertainment district with live music, international cuisine and abundant independent retail. St. Louis boasts one of the strongest Jewish communities in the country – comprised of approximately 55,000. The St. Louis Jewish community has 20 vibrant, diverse congregations and five Jewish Day Schools that reflect the full range of Jewish religious experience. Our JCC is one of the largest and most active Jewish community centers in the country – with programs and services for people of all ages, including daycare and camps for children and teens. In 2009, the JCC opened its incredible Staenberg Family Complex, which features state-of-the-art health and work out facilities for people of all ages.
