I was not an active member of my university's Hillel as an undergrad. I connected to Judaism in different ways. When I came to Washington, I found that J-Connect was the best way to connect to the community- either with other Jews or as Jews serving the larger community.
Through J-Connect I have a wonderful start to my week because of Yoga with Whitney on Mondays. I have been a part of Robert's amazing outreach efforts to bring awareness and action on homelessness and modern slavery. I also have been connected to others in the community through Rabbi Jacob's awesome networking skills. They make it easy to connect whether it be through a themed happy hour, cooking for a local tent city, or having a potluck Shabbat hosted in someone's house nearby. If you're in the area, come check it out!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
approachable and interested in connecting me to resources and people to get the most out of my experience and to help me contribute my skills to the community.
They are each wonderful to work with and great representatives of the wider Jewish community
