Hillels offer new outreach to college bound

Hillels in North America have a new resource: www.JCollegeBound.org enables high school seniors to share their names and email addresses with the Hillel at the college or university they plan to attend.

The Hillel director at the student’s new school will automatically be notified and will reach out to each student. Information will not be shared with any third party.

“This is a great way for incoming freshmen to get to know Jewish life on campus before they even get there, and it is also a huge help to the many Hillels, including ours here at the University of Arizona, whose host universities do not currently share information about Jewish students,” says Michelle Blumenberg, executive director of the UA Hillel Foundation.
