Jordan Robinson and Jessica YeroshalmiWASHINGTON – Hillel International, the largest Jewish campus organization in the world, announced today the co-chairs of the seventh cohort of its Student Cabinet, a committee of top student leaders that provide advice, opinions and perspectives to Hillel International leadership. 

Jessica Yeroshalmi of Baruch College and Jordan Robinson of Michigan State University have been selected to co-chair the body for the 2022-2023 school year. Yeroshalmi and Robinson are both current members of the cabinet and are active leaders on their respective campuses. As co-chairs of the Student Cabinet, they will also serve as members of the Hillel International Board of Directors.

“As Hillel strives to support students on more than 850 campuses, the voices of these young leaders are critical and inspiring,” said Hillel International President and CEO Adam Lehman. “Jessica and Jordan, alongside their peers on the Student Cabinet, have played an invaluable role in supporting and connecting student leaders from campus Hillels across North America and around the world. They are exemplary leaders who will undoubtedly continue to make our movement stronger.”

During her time as a Macaulay Honors student at Baruch College, Yeroshalmi has served as president of WINGS (Women Improving Next Generation Society) and as Co-Vice President of Programming on Hillel at Baruch’s Executive Board. In the past year as a member of the cabinet, Yeroshalmi co-chaired the Mizrahi-Sephardic cohort and undertook efforts to ensure that the voices of Jews from all backgrounds are heard and supported.

“Hillel has given me a home on campus and a global community of Jewish students that I can call family,” Yeroshalmi said. “As co-chair, I am excited to bring this feeling to more Jewish students around the world in order to provide the best campus experience possible. I’m grateful for this platform for students and can’t wait to get the work started.”

Robinson currently chairs the Hillel International Israel Leadership Network and serves in a number of leadership roles in the Jewish community at Michigan State. On campus, Robinson is the Executive Vice President of University Relations for the Jewish Student Union, and Vice President of Engagement and the Senior Relationship Building Intern for Spartans for Israel. 

“Hillel is a place of community where I feel like I am part of something much bigger than myself,” Robinson said. “It has given me new purpose and a renewed energy about our Jewish community not only on my campus, but for Hillel’s around the globe. I’m excited to further expand our movement into new places and elevate the global student experience.”

Yeroshalmi and Robinson will officially begin as co-chairs on July 1 and serve through the 2022-2023 school year, leading 20 Student Cabinet members in their work to support the experiences of Jewish students on campuses around the world.
