What are the Workshop Categories?
All Hillel Professionals are engaging students and communities in Jewish conversations and activities. These workshops will provide a diverse set of Jewish educational offerings designed to inspire, enrich and support our professionals in doing this work. Proposed sessions can include “how to” sessions, traditional Jewish study, and exploration of new ideas and methodologies to provide Jewish inspiration for our work and souls. These workshops will include a total of 3.5 hours of classroom time; split evenly on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively, with the same participants each day. Please be specific in the proposal about the level of Jewish education needed to participate.
Programmatic & Management Training and Workshops:
Coming together is an opportunity to learn skills, explore best practices, and stretch into new areas. The goal of these workshops will be to provide meaningful deep dives into content areas that will advance professionals’ work on campus. These can include professional development sessions, programmatic trainings, or thematic working group discussions. Workshops can be stand-alone trainings or serve as launch pads for ongoing learning and enrichment beyond the Global Assembly. These workshops will take place over three days with the same cohort of participants participating throughout. These workshops will include a total of 5.5 hours of classroom time, meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday for 1 hour and 45 minutes and 2 hours on Thursday morning.
