Jewish On Campus

is

ore and more Jewish programs
are actively seeking out Jewish
students on campus in hopes
of fending off the effects of disinterest,
assimilation and proselytizing.
"Many of the Jewish students we see are
apathetic in their practical approach to
Judaism, but deep down, we find they're
very, very interested in what it means to be
Jewish," says Rabbi Avraham Jacobovitz,
whose Oak Park-based Machon L'Torah-
The Jewish Learning Network of
Michigan operates the Jewish Resource
Center in Ann Arbor.
JRC serves students from all streams of
Judaism. The most-pressing issue on their
minds is a successful college agenda,
providing little time for anything else, says
Rabbi Jacobovitz, known as "Rabbi J" to
students and friends.
"It's crucial that we reach out to them
because they're at a juncture where the
decisions they make will determine the
way they go in life," he says. "It may take a
long time for the right moment to come
for them to seek us out."

Rabbi J also serves as a rabbinic adviser
to other Michigan universities, including
Michigan State, Wayne State and Western
Michigan. He works in concert with
campus Hillels, he says, to "enhance the
opportunities for Jewish learning and
Jewish life."
"Even for the most firmly committed,
maintaining a strong Jewish connection
on today's college campus is difficult,"
says Richard Moline of Koach College
Outreach, a project of the United
Synagogue of Conservative Judaism.
"The familiarity and comfort of home is
replaced with-uncertainty."
