What Do We Do?
The Jewish Graduate Student Initiative (JGSI) provides opportunities for Jewish graduate students of all backgrounds to discover the beauty and meaning of their heritage in an atmosphere of open inquiry and mutual respect. JGSI is a self- generating, non-profit vehicle whose mission is to build Jewish community on graduate school campuses and to engage graduate students, alumni, and young professionals with Jewish life. We enrich Jewish graduate student associations on campus by sponsoring speaker events, Shabbat dinners, Israel missions, networking and mentorship opportunities, and more. JGSI is dedicated to providing Jewish graduate students and alumni with the resources, experiences and connections they need to become active leaders in their respective industries and in the Jewish community.
