Fellowships, Internships, and Leadership Opportunities

UF Hillel Student Ambassadors

UF Hillel’s Student Ambassadors serve as representatives for UF Hillel, welcoming new students, creating a friendly and accepting environment for all. Ambassadors will host welcome events leading into the upcoming school year, give tours of the Hillel building and UF campus to prospective students, and engage in conversation about continued learning and community building opportunities within the Jewish community on campus.


Ambassadors take an active role within the Jewish community, and are an integral part of the student leadership network. The ideal ambassador is passionate about Hillel and Jewish life on campus. They are creative and organized, and enjoy planning events and opportunities for communities to come together. Ambassadors should be outgoing, personable, approachable, and able to represent the UF Jewish community in an enthusiastic, positive way. 

The Student Ambassador application will be open through Sunday, March 19. Interviews will begin shortly after the application closes.

The UF Hillel Student Ambassadors application is now closed.

Israel Learning Cohorts 

This year we are launching two new Israel cohorts: 

Kol Yisrael -   a 6-week educational opportunity for students to explore the multitude of cultures that make Israel such a special place. During this experience, students will have the opportunity to learn about different community groups cultures, ethnicities, and minorities that live in Israel. 

Unpacking the Conflict - a 6-week educational opportunity for students to dive into all elements of the geo-political conflicts of Israel and its neighbors.  Students will also be given guidance as to how they can advocate with confidence and learn how to have productive conversations with those who have different perspectives about Israel. 


Questions - contact Nofar Abutbul.

The Israel Learning Cohorts application for Spring 2023 is now closed.

Jewish Learning Fellowship (JLF) & JLF 2.0

The Jewish Learning Fellowship (JLF) is an 8-week experiential, conversational seminar for students looking to deepen their understanding of Judaism on their own terms. We’re interested in asking big questions. We make no claims about the “right” way to practice or not to practice Judaism. Our job is to help you explore the tradition in a safe space and find your own place, on your terms, in Judaism’s Great Conversation.  

If you have previously taken JLF, we offer a second JLF course as well. Space is limited, apply early!
