Senior Associate for Learning and Experiences (Center for Jewish and Israel Education)

Hillel International

Role Overview

The Center for Jewish and Israel Education at Hillel International is a team dedicated to supporting Jewish college students on a pathway toward Jewish adulthood. We envision students as ready to make life choices informed by Jewish values, confident in crafting Jewish experiences for themselves & their peers, and eager to find their next steps in Jewish life. We support, train, and provide resources for campus professionals to guide their students along that journey. Our three pillars are Cohort Learning, Educator Development, and Movement Culture. 

We envision a world in which Hillel is the central meeting point for inspired Jewish learning. In line with the best practices of education and the deepest wisdom of Jewish thought, we hold ourselves to an approach that centers authentic inquiry, multivocality, and personal reflection. 

The Senior Associate for Learning and Experiences will support initiatives across our three pillars, on a project-by-project basis, working with campuses to support grants and implementation of Cohort Learning, materials designed for Educator Development, and a broad range of resources that build a strong basis for Jewish knowledge, ritual, and meaning-making across our Movement Culture. Additionally, the Associate for Learning and Experience will support educator development through virtual and in-person immersive programs, including experiences in North America and Israel. Additionally, ongoing logistical and programmatic support for Movement Culture initiatives, such as Hillel Torah Salon, will be a core component of the portfolio.

We Are Looking for Someone Who is

  • Intentional. You know your WHY and can articulate it to others. You build with purpose and understand the importance of “getting it right” as well as “getting it done”.
  • Accountable. You own your mistakes and strive for growth. You deliver on your commitments and maintain clear communication with those who rely on you.

  • Hillel has a comprehensive benefits plan that includes medical, dental, and vision insurance, paid time off for Jewish and federal holidays, and an informal “take what you need” vacation policy. In addition, employees are enthusiastically encouraged to take advantage of professional development opportunities through Hillel U or our partner organizations. 
  • Flexible work hours and location. Please note that to be considered, you must be legally authorized to work in the United States. While we fully support remote work, we do require employees to be based in the United States. 

Time Zones and Workplace

While Hillel International’s headquarters are in Washington DC, we are a remote team, open to hiring anyone based in the United States with eligibility to work in the United States. We have a flexible work schedule, which aims to support our employees in maintaining maximally successful professional and personal lives. That said, we expect our employees to keep regular hours that are mutually agreed upon by the employee and their supervisor. While this position is remote, there are semi-regular in-person gatherings, trainings, and conferences that we expect our team to fully participate in. Regular travel is an expected part of this job. 

A note for current Hillel professionals: Current campus professionals may apply, and if a current Hillel professional is the finalist, we will work with them and their campus/supervisor to navigate a smooth transition on a mutually agreeable timeline. We are prepared to share time and resources during the transition so that a field colleague can wrap up their work on campus as they transition to a position at the SIC. We are open to considering other options that best support your campus while working towards filling this important role for the Hillel Movement as a whole.

Reporting Line

The Associate for Learning and Experiences reports to the Associate Vice President of Jewish Education, Danielle Kranjec, and will work collaboratively with other members of the CJIE and Meyerhoff teams.
