This Work Is Great

Inspiring Conversations with Jewish Professionals

“This Work is Great” is an Instagram Live series about Jewish professionals who love their jobs. Host fourth-year rabbinical and Zelikow student Jessica Jacobs chats with a new Jewish professional each week.

HUC is exceptionally proud of the work that Jewish professionals, including our alumni, are doing each and every day supporting families, comforting and celebrating, nurturing communities, and leaning in as people are staying home. Learn about all of the amazing things Jewish professionals are doing, and what makes their work great!
