2013 New Staff Orientation

Every year, shortly after graduation season, we have the pleasure of welcoming new faces to our office: new permanent staff, Education Fellows and summer interns.

macy-and-new-staff-smallerAlong with social events, our orientation includes informational sessions that get all of the new folks on the same page.  Above, ISJL president Macy Hart addresses new staff in the organizational overview session. Throughout the day, they’ll hear from each of our departments and prepare for their summer (or new life!) in Mississippi, in the office, and on the road. Hopefully, these new voices will be joining us here on the blog as well, to share some of their experiences with you, both during the summer and in the year to come.

Please join us in welcoming these new faces to their new Southern Jewish experience!
