At Stony Brook Hillel, we want to provide our students with a variety of opportunities to engage with Israel, Israeli politics and the organizations that support the Jewish homeland and the Jewish people. Below are a few off the conferences that Stony Brook students have attended in the past. With the help of the Dr. Edward Podolnick Memorial Jewish Student Leadership Development Fund, we are able to help offset the cost of sending our students to these conferences and more!
Students interested in attending any of these conferences or others that are not listed below should contact Gal Malka ([email protected]).
