Hillel's Journey: Distinctively Jewish, Universally Human

By Beth Cousens

Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life, 2007

This report presents the research findings that underlie Hillel's Strategic Plan. The research explores a hypothesized tension between Jewishness and universalism, between students' prospective commitments to their own Jewish heritage and to multiculturalism. The authors share their observations by communicating portraits of hypothetical students, intertwining their characteristics, behaviors, and attitudes into pictures of students' Jewishness, and by describing ten key findings that relate in greater detail students' characteristics, attitudes and behaviors, and their relationship with Hillel and Jewish life on campus.

Topic: College Organizations, Jewish Identification, Generational Issues, University Organizations, Campus Organizations, Students, Values
