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.

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.
