We at the Union for Reform Judaism are thrilled to announce the first URJ College Leadership Team and to introduce the Reform Jewish college students who will serve as leaders throughout the 2019-2020 school year.
These 12 students, located at universities throughout North America, will serve as the primary college leaders for the Reform Movement, partnering with staff and other lay leaders to strengthen Reform Jewish life on campuses across the continent. Selected from a pool of more than 70 well-qualified applicants, they represent a broad variety of Jewish backgrounds and leadership experiences, as well as university and geographic diversity.
Beginning with a team retreat in September 2019, team members will coordinate new projects and initiatives for Reform Jewish college students, ultimately growing the Reform Movement’s overall impact and presence on campuses throughout North America. In the coming school year, team members will work on and coordinate a variety of projects, including:
We can’t wait to see how the creativity and passion of each of these student leaders will foster new and exciting ways for college students to connect to one another and to Reform Judaism – in the coming year and beyond. Their work across campuses will connect Jewish college students to one another, expanding college student engagement throughout North America and empowering the current and future generation of Reform Jewish leaders.
