With the arrival of our new president Dr. Andrew Rehfeld, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion has launched an immediate and significant investment in institutional advancement staff and activities to strengthen philanthropic support for our mission of developing the next generation of Jewish professional leaders and scholars. We are recruiting a team to build our infrastructure, expand our donor base, enhance our stewardship efforts, and increase our short-term revenue as we prepare for a major campaign in the next few years.
Founded in 1875, HUC-JIR is the center of innovation for Jewish life and learning – preparing rabbis, cantors, leaders in Jewish education, Jewish nonprofit professionals, pastoral counselors, and scholars to apply their knowledge, commitment, vision, and expertise to strengthen and transform the Jewish community and larger world. We are the premier Jewish seminary in North America and the academic, spiritual, and professional leadership development center of Reform Judaism. Our students and alumni are leading a Jewish renaissance in North America, Israel, and around the globe as leaders in synagogues, schools, Hillels, hospitals, camps, and Jewish organizations worldwide.
