Emerging Adults: The Hillel Model for Jewish Engagement

By Jennifer Zwilling

Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life, 2010

Today’s college students are diverse, highly social and collaborative. Members of a generation that eschews particularism, the vast majority are reluctant to access Jewish institutions as a regular outlet for social networking or community-building. At the same time, they are openly proud of being Jewish. In this landscape, Hillel embraced two methodologies to move its work beyond “the institution” and “the program” to help each student connect to, explore, and affirm their Jewishness: “Relationship-Based Engagement” and “Meaningful Jewish Experiences.”
