TLJ is Tulane Hillel’s leadership incubator that brings together a diverse and strategic group of Jewish students to create Jewish programming and leadership opportunities for others. All of our programmatic offerings are entirely generated by our diverse student leaders.
The Leading Forward initiative identifies, recruits and accepts applications from a group of students with diverse Jewish backgrounds and experiences. From unaffiliated to highly affiliated Jewish students, these leaders are exposed to the full spectrum of Jewish life. This cohort will strategize how best to create the broadest based Jewish community, which will create a valuable and exciting experience for their peers, the Tulane Community and the city of New Orleans.

Education Inspires further learning. Join us for engaging seminars and discussions.
Learning takes place in every corner of our lives. This can include an interaction, an experience, a song we may hear or a text we may study. We make sure to increase exposure and interface with various modalities of learning to both lower the barrier and increase learning touch points. Here are a few ways in which we formalize this process to include the widest range of voices and perspectives into the educational experience.
As part of the mentorship program, Leading Forward, individual staff and student meetings are infused with various topics of Jewish values and traditions. These educational moments add more color and texture to the entrepreneurial activities of leaders, and enhance their sense of purpose and meaning.
