Taking on a leadership role and planning a Shabbat dinner at Hillel was such a meaningful experience for me. My involvement has helped build my identity as a Jewish leader — an important aspect of my life.
The many opportunities I’ve had to get involved have helped me make new friends, find Jewish community and discover new things about myself. Sometimes my leadership experiences have pushed me out of my comfort zone. I have been encouraged to grow in so many ways, both as a student and as a leader. Hillel is a safe place to step up and try new roles. It’s such a supportive environment. I always feel comfortable being myself.
