OU family please wish our fearless leader Eric D. Fingerhut b’hatzlacha (go with success/good luck) in his incredible new venture as the President and CEO of the Jewish Federations of North America. It’s sad because he will be terribly missed and exciting to see him taking his incredible leadership and change making skills to such a worthy organization. Kol ha’Kavod Eric.

Hillel International, the largest Jewish student organization in the world, announced today that President and CEO Eric D. Fingerhut will be leaving at the end of June to assume the position of President and CEO for the Jewish Federations of North America. Current Chief Operating Officer Adam Lehman will become Interim CEO, and Hillel will immediately launch a national search for a permanent successor.

“We are proud of Eric’s accomplishments and believe his appointment to lead JFNA is a testament to his success over the last five years at Hillel,” said Tina Price, chair of the Hillel International Board of Directors. “During his time with Hillel, Eric guided us through an ambitious strategic plan, focused on building the best talent in the Jewish world, and measuring our engagement to ensure excellence on every campus. We are excited to continue partnering with him in his new role.”

Since its founding in 1923, Hillel has been enriching the lives of Jewish students. Currently, Hillel International is a global organization that welcomes students of all backgrounds and strives to inspire every student to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning and Israel. It is dedicated to enriching the lives of Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world. Hillel engages student leaders on 550 colleges and universities in 18 countries around the world.

“We look forward to exploring candidates to lead Hillel into its second century,” Price said. “This is an incredible opportunity to build on Hillel’s achievements, and I’m confident we’re well positioned for success.

Wiesenthal Government Advocacy Internship

The Simon Wiesenthal Center has a summer internship program. We place college + grad students in local government offices so they learn the ins and outs of how government and advocacy work (and usually go hand in hand). There are evening seminars once a week and we pair interns with a mentor in the Jewish community. There is also a $1,500 stipend. We have only a couple spots left for this summer’s cohort. If you apply please let Sarah know.

The Wiesenthal Government Advocacy Internship will expose students to public policy, legislation and advocacy to combat antisemitism, fight bigotry and stereotyping and ensure proper legal and de-facto treatment of minority communities.Wiesenthal Government Advocacy Interns will:- Receive hands-on e...

Synagogue shooting in California leaves at least 1 dead and 3 wounded

Our love and heartfelt sympathy go out to Rabbi Goldstein, his family, and his entire congregation at Chabad of Poway. Hate in any form is never ok. We must share love in the face of baseless hatred. Jewish bobcats as always we love you. If you need to talk about this I’m here for you. - Sarah
Baruch Dayan H’emet.

A 19-year-old man was in custody after a shooting at a synagogue in the California city of Poway left at least one person dead and several others wounded, Mayor Steve Vaus said Saturday.
