Helping Students Navigate the College Environment

The OU’s Seif Jewish Learning Initiative on Campus (OU-JLIC) was created to help young men and women thrive in a campus environment and helps Jewish students observe key aspects of Jewish life, such as tefillah, kashrut, Shabbat, and chagim. Our educators serve as teachers and Torah role models within 23 universities in North America, learning with students one-on-one, coordinating weekly classes, and organizing guest lectures and other events. Your connection with a OU-JLIC educator will help you balance your Jewish life and provide avenues for spiritual development while attending a secular college.

Giving to OU-JLIC

Core funding for OU-JLIC comes from generous grants by the OU and by individual Hillels. To meet the program’s full costs, we seek support from alumni, parents, and others who value the impact that OU-JLIC educators have on students. Support for OU-JLIC builds on the investments our communities have made for the next generation through day school education, summer camps, and other Jewish experiences.
