Volunteer Leadership Positions
The Center for Jewish Life (CJL) Student Board is an organization of undergraduate students whose main task is to program activities and events to serve anyone in the Princeton community who enjoys Judaism, Jewish culture, Zionism, or just having a good time.
The Student Board is divided into the Executive Board and the Programming Board. The Executive Board consists of four elected positions: President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary. The Executive Board is responsible for directing programming and ensuring that important issues related to Judaism are addressed by the student body, and that good Jewish times are had by all who seek them. The Programming Board consists of four 3-4 person committees, with one Executive Board member sitting on each committee. Appointments to the Programming Board are made by the Executive Board after an application process. The Programming Board is responsible for brainstorming ideas and executing regular activities and events.
