Hillel’s Peer Network Engagement Interns
Hillel at Ohio University Peer Network Interns are chosen from a competitive applicant pool to foster relationships with other students on campus, initiate dialogue around meaningful Jewish experiences, advocate for Jewish life on campus, and when appropriate, organize and implement important programs that contribute to diversity and Jewish culture in Athens. Our Peer Network Interns learn valuable professional and personal skills in all areas of Jewish leadership and program facilitation, they serve on leadership committees across campus, attend conferences around the country, and participate in Israel trips through Taglit birthright Israel or the Jewish National Fund. Each year, Hillel employs five student interns who are hired in the spring for the following school year. If you are interested in applying for a paid internship with Hillel at OU, please contact Rabbi Danielle Leshaw at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hillel's Peer Network Engagement Interns for the 2012-13 school year are Morgan Blumenfeld email@example.com, Cydney Goldberg, Phil Ganson, Kara Leyser, and Sammi Broad. They LOVE to say hello to Jewish Bobcats and get coffee, lunch, or otherwise hang out and meet new and returning students.

The Friday Night Miracles
Music is a huge component of Hillel's Friday night Shabbat services. Our student musicians, The Friday Night Miracles, are an inspired group of students who join voices and instruments to lead both traditional and contemporary liturgy during prayer services and at university wide events including MLK Day concerts, Front Room appearances, University Interfaith Association events, and more. The instrument range is wide -- from vocals to guitar to cello to violin to percussion -- and involved students welcome both new and seasoned musicians to join the group. No experience is necessary with liturgy, just a willingness to learn and be inspired!! For more information, please contact Kevin Teplitzky email@example.com.
Work Study Students
Hillel is fortunate to receive FAFSA work study students each year. Our work study students help create programs, assist with PR and
Marketing, manage our data bases, and in general, keep things running smoothly at Hillel. We love our work study students dearly and allow
them to make their own work schedules – nights, mornings, weekends, holidays. Interested? Be in touch with Lauren Goldberg, Hillel’s Engagement Professional, for more information and to get your paperwork started firstname.lastname@example.org!
We're proud to have Louie Rosen, email@example.com, and Danielle King firstname.lastname@example.org as our work study students. Be in touch with them if you have any questions about working at Hillel.
Bobcats for Israel
Bobcats for Israel was created during the 2008-09 school year by Rachel Zeleniec, OU '10, as a way to gather students to advocate for Israel, create educational opportunities for the campus community to learn more about Israel's role in the Middle East, and to celebrate the diversity of culture that exists in Israel. Bobcats for Israel focuses on large scale programs that bring pro-Israel speakers and Israeli entertainers to Ohio University. To get involved, contact Alex Lilly, Bobcats for Israel President, at email@example.com.
Got Swabbed? Bone Marrow Interns
Due to the generous support of The Epstein Teicher Philanthropies, Hillel at Ohio University has created two paid internships to increase our Got Swabbed? Bone Marrow Drive efforts. Students selected for these internships are responsible for engaging three reliable volunteers to join the Bone Marrow Steering Committee, to attend regular planning meetings, to secure funding, to implement swabbing teams that visit large-scale programs across campus, and to assist in the One Day event in Baker Center. If you'd like to be considered as a Bone Marrow Intern for the 2013-14 school year, please be in touch with Rabbi Danielle.
Hillel's Swabbing Interns for the 2012-13 school year are Henry Kessler firstname.lastname@example.org and Rachel Rzepka email@example.com.
