About Hillel Ontario:
Hillel Ontario serves approximately 13,500 Jewish students across nine universities, and is the largest regional Hillel system in the world. A model for the Hillel movement, Hillel Ontario was created on October 1, 2015 and strives to inspire every Jewish student in Ontario to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning, and Israel.

As part of its recently completed Strategic Plan (available for review upon request), Hillel Ontario is in the process of expanding its student peer-to-peer engagement programs as a way of broadening our campus reach.  We will also be reconvening our Student Leadership Council, which launched this year and drew representatives from our nine campuses, re-configuring our teen engagement program, and cultivating our relationships with Jewish communal organizations. The Manager, Education and Engagement will take a lead role in each of these efforts.
