Jewish on Campus: Finding Your Own Way
Have you heard conflicting stories about what life is like on college campuses these days? Especially for Jewish students? Are you wondering what questions to even ask as you think about your Jewish life in college?
Come and learn what’s up from someone who’s been in the thick of things for more than 10 years. Rabbi Megan Doherty, the Hillel rabbi at Oberlin College, will share her perspective on campus Jewish life today, and on choosing a campus that’s right for your (Jewish) self.
Rabbi Megan Doherty (she/her) is the Director of Hillel and Campus Jewish Life at Oberlin College. Previously, she was an Associate Rabbi and Senior Jewish Fellow at the Slifka Center for Jewish Life at Yale.
Rabbi Doherty is a graduate of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, and is a certified Jewish Mindfulness Meditation Instructor through the Institute for Jewish Spirituality. She has an extensive background in facilitation and mediation, and is a state-certified mediator in the state of Ohio. She serves on the board of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association, and was a founding co-chair of the Reconstructionist Movement’s Israel Commission.
In her decade of campus work, the most consistent need Rabbi Doherty has seen in North American Jewish college students is the need for a nap.
