Jewish Learning Initiative on Campus


The OU Heshe and Harriet Seif Jewish Learning Initiative on Campus (JLIC) is a program of the Orthodox Union in partnership with Hillel. Administered by the OU, JLIC is a program that helps Orthodox students navigate the college environment, and balance their Jewish commitments with their desire to engage the secular world. JLIC also provides avenues for spiritual development and exploration for Jewish students from varied backgrounds; JLIC presents a positive, sophisticated and welcoming face for Orthodox Judaism on campus. The JLIC program at Cornell is funded jointly by Cornell Hillel, CJL, and CJL-F. Right now, JLIC and Hillel are working to hire a new OU-JLIC Couple for the 2022-2023 school year and beyond.
