Every OU-JLIC Program is a project of the Orthodox Union in partnership with Hillel. As such, the OU-JLIC Co-Directors at Queens College are a full part of the Queens College Hillel senior staff. They are supported by Hillel, work out of the Hillel offices, run events in the Hillel space, and oversee Hillel’s Orthodox programming and prayer services. They are fully included in staff meetings and strategic planning sessions, helping guide the Orthodox community synchronously with larger Jewish community. Under the strong guidance of executive director Uri Cohen, the Charnoffs have had the support, resources, and creative freedom to greatly enhance the Orthodox community within Hillel’s larger mission of creating meaningful Jewish experiences that encourage all Jewish students to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning, and Israel.
