Just weeks following her graduation from KU, Becca Levine has moved to Delaware to start her job as the Israel Engagement Associate at University of Delaware Hillel.
Through her numerous leadership roles at KU and her internship and leadership classes at Hillel, Levine said she has grown as a leader and hopes to use these skills to teach other Jewish young adults. “What I love the most about becoming a Jewish Professional is that there is so much room to learn, grow, and inspire,” Levine said.
Levine also said she appreciates the way KU Hillel staff members allow students to grow on what they are passionate about and to work at Hillel in a fun environment where they are more than just students. Levine said she spent time at Hillel multiple times a week because the Hillel office provided a comfortable place at school where she could help out with all different types of events with staff members.
Beyond making an impact in the United States, the KU Hillel staff hopes to inspire Jewish college student to develop a meaningful and enduring relationship to Israel. “We are so proud that recent graduate Ally Levine will be moving to Israel to participate in a teaching fellowship program through Masa Israel,” says KU Hillel Program Director Melissa Kingston.
“While we are thrilled to see our student leaders taking positions across the United States and in Israel, we could not be more excited about a recent hire closer to home,” Kingston continues.
KU Hillel has hired recent graduate Tori Luecking as their Engagement Associate, a full-time position that will drive the organization’s efforts to reach out to and engage hundreds of new students in Jewish life at KU.
“It has been amazing to watch all of our student leaders grow the past few years. It’s also pretty unique that I will now be able to work along side one of one our very own involved and talented students,” Kingston concludes.
