Hillel announced Monday the appointment of Rabbi Serena Eisenberg as its executive director. Eisenberg follows in the footsteps of Adina Danzig Epelman, who left last year after a decade of service on the Farm.
From 2005 to 2007, Eisenberg served as executive director of Hillel at Brown University, where she further developed the school’s cultural programs and increased participation in Birthright Israel. She also was a fellow at the Mandel Leadership Institute from 2008 to 2009.
“We are thrilled to have Serena Eisenberg’s leadership to take Hillel at Stanford into the future,” wrote Jim Heeger, president of the Hillel Board of Directors, in a press release. “Her Hillel experience at a major university, track record of success in developing programming and funding and deep appreciation of engaging college students in meaningful exploration of Jewish life and identity will be a great asset.”
“Hillel at Stanford is known as an outstanding organization, and I am honored to be joining its diverse Jewish student body, skilled professionals and impressive alumni and parent network,” Eisenberg wrote in a press release.
