jNET – Engagement and Entrepreneurship Fellowship
jNET is a group of peer network fellows guided by the University of Michigan Hillel’s strategic goal to develop relationships with Jewish students in order to engage them in meaningful Jewish life. jNET is a cohort of network weavers, representing different micro-communities on campus, led by a Hillel staff supervisor. Participation in jNET is an investment in each network weaver’s professional development. jNET fellows participate in ongoing development in social networking theory, relationship-building, Jewish sociology and identity, and community organizing. Through one-on-one relationships, jNET fellows foster Jewish community outside of the current Hillel infrastructure.
