STEP 1: Gradual launch of HILEL CAMPUS, with its 4 axes, in a limited scale,
over 3 years in Paris and Marseille
LIVING SPACE :
HOUSING AND INCUBATOR
Accommodation at affordable rental fees in exchange for the cohabiting students’ commitment to be involved in community activities (cultural, artistic, intellectual, religious etc.)
Meeting students’ needs and expectations,
And engaging them in community life.
AWARENESS AND TRAINING
Organizing Weekends / Shabbatons with a focus on raising awareness of the need to engage, followed by leadership training seminars.
Stimulating and identifying vocations
Cultivating a leadership of excellence via training programs.
ADAPTING THE JEWISH IDENTITY TO THE PRESENT
We must counter to the current trend of obscurantism and the withdrawal of identity!
Learning, thought and questioning are bases of the Jewish identity and bring forth Jewish responses to the moral and societal crises of our time.
Reacquaint the youth with a solid and intellectually demanding Jewish identity
Provide Jewish intellectual keys to contemplate and shape the future.
SOCIAL SERVICES TO ACCOMPANY THE YOUTH
Weekly presence of social workers.
To assist the young people, to inform them and to help them face their social and professional problems (finance, social integration, educational guidance, professional integration, emigration to Israel, etc.).
What they’re saying about us
Benjamin Gross ז’’ל, Writer, philosopher, university professor, honorary committee member of the Réseau SAJE
French Judaism has not taken a particular interest in students and in the imperative need to bring them closer to the community so that they may discover the treasures of Jewish culture.
The initiative to create HILEL CAMPUS comes at the right time and we wish it a great success in order to guarantee the succession of the community leadership in the upcoming years.
