Highered Holidays: Best Practices Using a High-Holiday Rabbi on Campus

Ended Aug 21, 2018


Full course description

Full Description:

If you’re hiring a rabbi for the High Holidays, this is the class for you! In this class, Getzel Davis (SJE at Harvard Hillel) will help you turn your “rent-a-rabbi” into an outstanding educator and ambassador for Hillel. Together you will workshop how to orient your hired rabbi to the unique needs of college students. This will include providing guidance on what sermon to give and what not to give; how to get beyond the sermon and have real relationships over the holidays (even if only brief), and how to help this rabbi make the “hand-off” to Hillel after the holidays are over.

    • Tuesday, August 21st, 1:00pm - 2:30pm EDT / 10:00am - 11:30am

Rabbi Getzel Davis, at Harvard University Hillel.
