Contact Sharon Stern

We will celebrate our successful past year and look ahead to several exciting new initiatives in the coming year. The entire Cincinnati community is invited to join the celebration.

Members of Hillel’s student board will lead the meeting with Hillel President Ronna Schneider. Marcie Bachrach, Joshua Blatt, Cindy Cohen, Anita Dock and Ingrid Epstein will be welcomed as new members of Cincinnati Hillel’s board of directors. The Colman and Florence Hanish Award will be presented to Hillel Executive Committee member Bryna Miller.

The meeting’s focus will be on the new Careers Cincinnati program and on Hillel’s response to the rise in overt anti-Semitism in the world, particularly on social media.

Careers Cincinnati is a joint project with Hillel at Miami University that was recently funded for three years by The Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati. This program will help keep talented students in Cincinnati after their graduation by placing them in summer internships in their fields while connecting them to mentors, to networks, and to the quality of life opportunities in Cincinnati and Jewish Cincinnati.

Cincinnati Hillel’s response to the rise in anti-Semitism and anti-Israel activities is based on providing support for Hillel students and on building stronger relationships with other student groups.

The one-hour meeting will be followed by a dessert reception in the gallery.
