Starting this spring semester, we will be piloting a new fellowship to enhance the Shabbat experience at Hillel. Innovation Fellows will have the opportunity to develop their own Shabbat programming*, help build a vibrant, diverse community at Hillel, and gain important leadership and engagement skills. As an Innovation Fellow, you will be part of an exceptional cohort of peers who will bring meaningful, engaging and fun Shabbat experiences to the campus community in and out of the Hillel building.
Through weekly training sessions and direct mentorship by Hillel staff, you will learn how to engage and mobilize your peers on campus, lead, organize and market your own events, explore major issues surrounding Jewish life today, engage in text study (Hebrew not required), and enhance the Shabbat experience at Hillel.
We are looking for candidates who are excited by Shabbat (in whatever way it’s important to you), who are friendly, creative, strategic and flexible. Most of all, we’re looking for team players who enjoy building community across the spectrum of Jewish identity and practice.
Fellows will each receive a stipend for the semester and additional funds for programming needs.
*Experience with leading and organizing Reform or Conservative services is a plus, but not required. We’re looking for people who want to think outside the box and offer additional options for gathering, conversation, reflection, music, ritual and/or prayer.
