Jewish Learning Initiative on Campus
Rabbi Elie Bercuson and Ilana Bercuson are educators at the Center for Jewish Life (CJL) under the auspices of the Jewish Learning Initiative on Campus (JLIC), a partnership between Hillel and the Orthodox Union that is active on fifteen college campuses across North America. The mission of JLIC is threefold:
- To enable, encourage, and advance the Torah education and commitment of Orthodox students at secular universities.
- To provide avenues to spiritual development and exploration for Jewish students from all backgrounds.
- To strengthen Orthodox communities on campus in a manner that also encourages openness and mutual respect to all Jews and Jewish communities on campus.
