Attending the CCAR Conference? Join us and help Recruit the Next Generation for HUC-JIR

Monday, March 3, 2008

As part of our new strategic plan for recruitment, Monday (12:15-2 PM) at the CCAR conference, the College-Institute will host a session that invites Rabbinical alumni/ae to partner with us in recruiting the next generation of Jewish professionals for their alma mater. Rabbi Aaron Panken will update the community on new initiatives in recruitment, technology and admissions; Rabbis Amy Perlin and Debra Robbins will share their particular expertise in helping shape congregational programs that recruit the best and the brightest. Other members of the HUC-JIR Admissions Staff, including Rabbi Shena Potter Jaffee from the Cincinnati campus, will be on hand to discuss admissions requirements, changes in program and there will be time for discussion of any questions you have. Please join us for a lively and interesting discussion.
