  • Confidence initiating and running programs, and comfortable asking questions.
  • Ability to collaborate across teams both inside and outside of Hillel.
  • An excitement and willingness to not slow down until you have reached your recruitment goal.
  • Inability to get off an airplane without making a new friend.

  • Understanding that students will connect with Israel in a variety of different ways.
  • Willingness to admit what you don't know, and excitement to learn in those areas.
