There’s something special about Jewish community. At Hillel, Community Leadership and involvement interns lead the way in helping the more than 4,200 Jewish students on campus plot their Jewish journey. We don’t believe that there is one right way to “do Jewish,” but we do know that one of the best ways to share the meaningful experiences, relationships, and community that make our campus special is through the work done by our Community Leadership and Involvement Interns.

Student Leadership Involvement Intern @ Hillel

 Each semester Hillel offers around 15 student leaders a chance to build the Jewish community that they want to be a part of at the University of Wisconsin-Madison through relationship building, networking, and crafting meaningful experiences.  

What will you do as part of our Community Leadership and Involvement Team?


Connect with Students 

Whether you’re meeting people at Shabbat dinner at Hillel, taking a new student out for a coffee or Ice cream, hosting a thought-provoking conversation, or just enjoying time spent with other Jewish students, as a community leadership and involvement intern, you’ll do your best to help students connect with and explore what it means to be a part of the Jewish community.  

With the support and training of Hillel’s professional staff, you’ll use your own experiences, interests, and social networks to build Jewish community.  

Grow and Learn Together 

Being a leader takes work! Thankfully, there is no shortage of examples of different types of leaders in the Jewish community. Through a combination of formal training and informal experiences, we’ll explore what roles we can play in the community and develop the skills that we need to be in community with other people. Together with the rest of the Community Leadership and Involvement team, you’ll think about where your Jewish journey can take you and get closer the people who can support you on the way.
