Enriching the lives of Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world.
Inspiring every Jewish student to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning and Israel.
Student Cabinet statement:
Hillel International's Student Cabinet represents over 550 local Hillels and nearly 150,000 students globally as the student voice and voluntary leadership body for the greater Hillel movement. We generate ideas for how Hillel can better serve students and then work with the Hillel International team to make them happen.
History of the Student Cabinet:
Hillel International's Student Cabinet was founded by students Hannah Schlachter (Illini Hillel) and Evan Traylor (Kansas Hillel). The Cabinet embodies diverse facets of the modern Jewish college student voice, drives collaboration between students, and serves as the student stakeholder group representing 550 campuses to Hillel International. Each year, the Cabinet is comprised of a diverse group of students representing diverse Jewish backgrounds, including students of color, students from interfaith backgrounds, students with disabilities, students who identify as LGBTQ, and students from an array of schools and areas of study.
