Orthodox Jewish Forum

of Highland Park / Edison

The Orthodox Forum of Edison/Highland Park presents the Andrew Getraer, Saturday night, December 18, at 8:00pm at Congregation Etz Ahaim and viewable via zoom.  90% of university-age American Jews attend college, making campus antisemitism a central issue for the American Jewish community. Andrew Getraer was executive director of Rutgers Hillel, the largest Hillel in America, for 20 years. In that time Rutgers was both one of the most embattled campuses in the country and one of the most successful in combatting anti-Jewish activity. Mr. Getraer will engage in a frank and open discussion of the perceptions, realities, challenges, and opportunities we face today.

Andrew Getraer was Executive Director of Hillel at Rutgers University from 2001-2021, serving the largest Jewish undergraduate population in the US. Under his leadership, Rutgers Hillel became one of the most successful Hillels in the country, increasing revenues and student engagement by over 500%, and building a new, state-of-the-art 40,000 S.F. facility, the largest in the country.

The program is free of charge. The Orthodox Forum gladly accepts season sponsorships, as well as program sponsorships. Zoom link:  https://tinyurl.com/cpure5uj
