Over the course of two weeks, the Class of 2017 engaged in meaningful discussions with experts on topics ranging from Jewish ethics in business, personal finance, anti-semitism and anti-Zionism on campus, being a minority on campus, making responsible decisions, and sexual education.
We were fortunate enough to hear from experts inside and outside of the community, including Rick Zitelman leading the Zitelman Family Senior Seminar on Jewish ethics in business; Dr. Diane Dubinsky, a retired pediatrician from the area; as well as higher education professionals from the George Washington University. Professionals from GW Hillel and Hillel international spoke about Jewish life on campus and our partners from the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington, Jewish Community Relations Council, and Anti-Defamation League discussed BDS issues, how to engage in meaningful conversations, and how to be a minority on campus. Attorneys who focus on Title IX work and sexual assault trends on campus spoke with our rising college freshman about being responsible community members.
Thank you to all of our speakers, as well as the Zitelman Family for their support.
