A Note from Interim Executive Director, Scott Selig:
Hello, I would like to take a brief moment to introduce myself and share what we have instore for the fall 2016 semester at UCONN Hillel. I was a Hillel Director 20 years ago, 1996 and 1997, at the University of Hartford. I have worked for the Jewish community at the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford and have served on the board of directors for the Solomon Schechter Day School and Jewish Family Services and been a chapter advisor to two Jewish fraternities and one Jewish Sorority. I am excited to work to help our great staff, student leaders and partners creating meaningful Jewish experiences on campus.
We are expanding our Shabbat experience every Shabbat starting this week by incorporating the award winning "Ask Big Questions Jewish conversation" series. I will be piloting the Bible of Business program with students, this program weaves together the vision and values of 15 well known and highly successful Jewish entrepreneurs to teach students of all backgrounds on the skills necessary to successfully launch, run and scale their own project or business.
I look forward to supporting our team as we provide programming for; the Huskies for Israel, High Holidays, Birthright, Sukkot, First Year Students of Hillel (FYSH), The Humus Experience, Kosher Kooking, and many more... we are going to have a great year, come join us!
