Rabbi Kenneth Brander wrote an op-ed in the JTA that highlights the importance of engaging the Gen Y generation through service and I could not agree with him more. He writes: “We must insure the placing of service learning initiatives and leadership opportunities within a rich Jewish context. This allows our experiential experiences to give voice to the immortal and contemporary traditions of our people.”
This is something that Areyvut takes very seriously and we have a great track record in these areas. I look forward to working with Rabbi Brander and his team and colleagues at Yeshiva University on further developing these types of resources and programs.
I also look forward to meeting students when I participate later this month in Yeshiva University’s Jewish Job Fair. If you are at the fair please come find me and introduce yourself.
