Over the last 3 years the JSA/Hillel Executive has planned the most amazing programs and opportunities to connect Jewishly on campus. Jews, Brews and Canoes - 3 day leadership retreat at B'Nai Brith Camp, the Jews, Brews and Cruise kick off event on the Paddlewheel last year in addition to these sold out events: keynote speaker Ishmael Beah and the Punch Lines for Peace are programs that are still been talked about both on campus and through out our Jewish community. Beyond the countless Shabbats and the ever successful annual Interfaith Shabbat program, that seems to grow exponentially every year, JSA/Hillel in just 3 short years has created a visible space on campus for all Jewish students to connect with.
These past 3 years have been an incredible journey for me. I have had the great pleasure to be introduced and work with, in my opinion not only great leaders and students on campus, but the leaders of tomorrow.
As I take on the new position of Director of Leadership with the Jewish Federation, I want to extend a thank you to JSA/Hillel, the past and present Executive as well as the membership at large for all of your support and your vision to always seem to make the impossible a reality.
My new office is just down the hallway and my new contact information is: 477-7407 or SLoxton(a)jewishwinnipeg.org<mailto:SLoxton@jewishwinnipeg.org>.
