Thanks to all of the Juniors, Seniors, and parents who joined us at Monday night’s Jewish Life On Campus Night, highlighting the importance of considering Jewish life on campus when making college decisions.  The evening began with an interactive presentation by Rabbi Hart Levine, Founder of Heart To Heart, a student-run organization located on college campuses throughout North America under the umbrella of the Orthodox Union’s Jewish Learning Initiative On Campus, that offers many forms of Jewish programming.  Rabbi Levine demonstrated the various online tools that he and the OU have developed to help students learn about the Jewish resources available at more than 270 colleges across the country, from kosher food to the phone number of the local Chabad Rabbi, and more.  Following Rabbi Levine’s presentation, a group of MTA alumni, who are currently attending colleges from Yeshiva University to Cooper Union, Brandeis, and Virginia, described the Jewish life and experiences available on each of their campuses.  Afterwards, everyone participated in break-out sessions, where alumni answered questions about their respective campuses and Rabbi Levine worked with participants on researching Jewish Life at the colleges they are interested in.  Click here to view photos.
