Plan programs, engage students, delevop your leadership skills, and it's a great resume builder!

The Leadership Council is the student governing body that ensures Hillel is running smoothly and efficiently.

The purpose of the Hillel Leadership Council, it to create a pluralistic environment that both welcomes and engages as many students as possible to explore and celebrate Judaism. Twice a month, the leadership council hosts town hall meetings where Micro-communities can gather and voice their accomplishments and concerns. A Micro-community could be a Registered Student Organization (RSO) or it could be a group of 8 students that share some common goal or identity.
