At GW Hillel, leadership opportunities come in all shapes and sizes. We are excited to introduce the many student leaders helping to form our vibrant Jewish community.
The 2019-2020 Jewish Student Association
The Jewish Student Association represents and serves the interests of all Jewish students by working closely with Hillel at the George Washington University. We partner with other student groups and campus administration to best provide support to our celebrated Jewish community, give voice to our members, and act in pursuance of Jewish laws, traditions, and values as needed.
The 2019-2020 GW Hillel Project Managers
Project Managers are the newest leadership offerings in the GW Hillel Leadership Team. Project Managers work directly with Hillel staff on implementing strategies and goals to improve Jewish life for students at GW. They are responsible for designing and implementing specific projects that will have lasting effects on the GW Hillel community. Project Managers receive extensive leadership and resume-building experience and are paired with a mentor to guide their growth.
The 2019-2020 UGeW Engagement Interns
Officially launched in April 2011, the uGeW Initiative was created in recognizing that the huge Jewish community on GW’s campus had communal, intellectual, and spiritual needs that were not being met. Many Jewish students seek moments of meaning – but don’t always find this meaning through traditional models of Jewish practice.
uGeW provides the tools to GW students who seek to cultivate their own sense of Jewish identity – on their own terms and in a way that will reverberate for many years to come. At the heart of this approach is 1:1 relationship building, cultivated by our fabulous class of uGeW interns. They are ready, willing, and able to take you out for coffee, hear your story, and create the right Jewish community building opportunity for you.
