Your Guide to Vlog B'Omer

Happy Vlog B'Omer! Join us in celebrating on Thursday, May 3, 2018!

Fan the flames of Jewish passion in others. Show your love for HUC-JIR and inspire tomorrow's leaders to begin their own professional journey! 

1: Make a short video sharing what you love about your field and how HUC-JIR helped you get there.

Be creative! Do this alone, with your team, in a cab on the way to an event...the possibilities are endless! Here is a sample script:

"I am an alum of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion's X School (and Y School, if you graduated from more than one). I love what I do because...(share a brief story illustrating this). Thank you, HUC-JIR, for giving me the tools to do what I love. Visit huc.edu to learn more. I tag (list the names of three alumni) to share your story!"

A few tips:

  • Hold the camera horizontally.
  • Keep your video to under one minute.
  • If possible, ask someone else to record you.

Check out a sample video:

 

2: Post your video to social media on Vlog B'Omer (May 3) with #lovewhatyoudo!

Here are sample posts:

  • Happy Vlog B'Omer! Check out my video about why I love what I do. Learn more about [@Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion] at huc.edu. I call on (tag three HUC-JIR alumni) to share your video! #lovewhatyoudo 
  • You should #lovewhatyoudo as much as I do. Check out my video and see why! Then learn more about [@Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion] at huc.edu. I call on (tag three HUC-JIR alumni) to share your video!

3: Make it social! Tag three friends to share their stories.
