Jake is excited to be a part of The iCenter, where he infuses his lively camp counselor spirit into the realm of Israel education. Within The iCenter, he holds the role of Academic Program Coordinator for the iFellows initiative and the Graduate Degree in Israel Education at the George Washington University. In this capacity, he collaborates closely with both academic programs and The iCenter’s Experience Team to craft and execute in-person experiences and contribute to the expansion of The iCenter’s academic offerings.
Most recently, Jake was the Community Experience Specialist at Hillel at Arizona State University, where he planned and executed all of Hillel’s large-scale social programs, oversaw all of their student-facing marketing, and led Birthright Israel trips. Jake was a longtime camper and staff member at Capital Camps, where he served as Sports Director and led their inaugural Israel trip. A graduate of Tulane University in International Relations, Jake is a big fan of Tulane athletics (and sports in general) and is an avid baseball player and fan.
What are you happiest doing outside of work?
Being outside! Whether it’s a walk along Lake Michigan, playing softball with my team in Evanston, running through Northwestern’s campus, or tossing a football under the autumn leaves, I love the fresh air. See you under the sun!
