I worked with this organization during my first year out of college. It was my first job and I couldn't have asked for a better first job. I was in charge of Freshman outreach. I was supposed to tell students about Hillel and Jewish Life at Pitt. It was incredible. My favorite memories were walking into a packed auditorium on the third floor for Shabbat dinner! We would have over 130 people present and the vibe and excitement in the room was magical. Students now have to pay for Shabbat dinner and that just isn't right. This is a phenomenal organization it should be able to give students everything they need, and money should not be the issue.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
enthusiastic, caring, genuine, and most of all, they cared about the institution, because it is a great institution.
