 Top 50 Innovative

Jewish Organizations

 in the Thirteenth Annual

Slingshot Guide

UF Hillel Named One of North America’s 

Top 50 Innovative Jewish Organizations 

 in the Thirteenth Annual Slingshot Guide.

June 4, 2018

 

The Slingshot Guide has become a go-to resource for volunteers, activists, and donors looking for new opportunities and projects that, through their innovative nature, will ensure the Jewish community remains relevant and thriving.

 

UF Hillel was selected for its groundbreaking and nationally recognized student engagement initiatives, as one of North America’s top 50 innovative Jewish organizations in the thirteenth annual Slingshot Guide.

 

The Slingshot Guide has become a go-to resource for volunteers, activists, and donors looking for new opportunities and projects that, through their innovative nature, will ensure the Jewish community remains relevant and thriving.

 

UF Hillel was selected from among hundreds of finalists reviewed by over 100 individuals with expertise in grant-making and Jewish communal life.

 

Rabbi Adam Grossman was also recognized in the 2014 - 2015 Slingshot Guide for developing the TI Fellowship during his term as Rabbi in Memphis.

 

Organizations included in this year’s Guide were evaluated on their innovative approach, the impact they have in their work, the leadership they have in their sector, and their effectiveness at achieving results.

 

Rabbi Adam Grossman believes that being recognized by Slingshot affirms the great work occurring by the UF Hillel team in engaging the disengaged and disenfranchised Jewish population.

 

UF Hillel is proud to be among the 50 organizations honored for meeting those standards.

 

The organizations included in the Guide are driving the future of Jewish life and engagement by motivating new audiences to participate in their work and responding to the needs of individuals and communities – both within and beyond the Jewish community – as never before.

 

This award highlights the importance of reimagining old paradigms to inspire a new generation with Jewish meaning.
