The Sweet Spot: Alumni Career Development Meets Digital Engagement

<div class="masa-blog-title">The Sweet Spot: Alumni Career Development Meets Digital Engagement</div>

Earlier this month, Russ Finkelstein wrote about keeping alumni engaged and involved by offering career services. Before we can tap into alumni communities for fundraising and volunteer requests, he argues, we have to provide them something of value, something that they want.
 
At Masa Israel we wholeheartedly agree, and have been experimenting in the professional development space for the past year.

Masa-Hillel Fellowship: Building the Jewish Community’s Leaders

This past summer I left Berkeley Hillel, where I was on staff for four amazing years, to head to Israel.  I didn’t grow up in Jewish day school, or have extensive experience in Israel – so my time had come to spend a year immersing myself in Jewish text and living in the land of milk and honey. My goal for studying with the Pardes Experiential Educators Program was to take experiential education programs to a higher level by infusing them with real Jewish content and meaning.

Masa Israel Cohosts AIPAC Policy Conference Welcome Party

March 3, 2014

Washington, DC – Over 400 Israel supporters, including Masa Israel alumni, attended the official welcome party for the 2014 AIPAC Policy conference.

The DC Masa Alumni Board tabled at the event, sharing their experiences of living in Israel as an intern, student or volunteer. Masa also held a raffle to win a gift basket filled with Israeli products. The alumni board members in attendance circulated through the pro-Israel crowd throughout the night, providing information and answering questions. The event was a tremendous success as a fundraiser, raising money for HaLev Israel, a new organization that provides scholarships to bring pro-Israel activists from all over the world to their first AIPAC Policy Conference.


For more information on Masa Israel's presence at the 2014 AIPAC Policy Conference or on the DC Masa alumni community, contact Jenn Rheuban.
