Student Board

The BU Hillel Student Board governs the Hillel Students Organization SAO group and is a prominent leadership cohort at BU Hillel. The Student Board creates and implements social, religious and community outreach programs and organizes community service and social action events throughout the school year. Additionally, the Student Board works with the other Hillel student groups on larger programs, as well as with non-Hillel groups to strengthen relationships between student groups on campus. In essence, the role of the Student Board is to bring all the parts of Hillel together to create and maintain a vibrant Jewish Community on campus.

Student Board Covenant

To allow enough time for students to address the G-board at the meeting, they must reach out to Sydney Berman (President) at by 5:00 pm on Mondays so she has time to add it to the agenda.

Any student may attend a G-board meeting even if he/she misses the deadline, but may have to wait until the next week to ensure the desired amount of time.
