Summary

"I’m excited to begin the next part of my life in New York City as the inaugural Presidential Fellow for Millennial Engagement at the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ). I'll be working with the URJ and its partner organizations to create and implement strategies to more effectively engage millennials (people in their 20s and 30s) in Jewish life. I have always had a strong connection to Reform Judaism through camp and youth group, and I can’t wait to pursue this passion professionally. Reflecting upon my Jewish experiences at KU, the Jewish Studies Program allowed me to explore and discover different aspects of Judaism and expand my connection to the Jewish religion, culture, and people." -Evan
