About Us

Dear Friends,

We are so excited to welcome you to our 6th Annual OU – JLIC Shushan Auction!

Welcome to our Bar Mitzvah Year!

We have added so many new programs and initiatives to our already robust calendar. On campus, we have several new weekly classes, including Mindful Mondays, a class on staying mindful and present in our fast-paced society. We are also helping our students plan for their future by creating professional panels led by our alumni in fields including medicine and business. Our OU- JLIC Whatsapp chat has provided many students with opportunities for internships and employment.

For our alumni, we’ve added alumni barbecues, onegs, marriage workshops, and young professionals events to our calendar.

In our 13th year, we are continuing to be guides and friends to our students. We provide a place for spiritual development and exploration for Jewish students from varied backgrounds. We’re continuing our Shabbatonim, Onegs, and Yom Tov programming, classes, trips, Chasan and Kallah courses, and other activities for Jewish students and alumni in Brooklyn.

For the first time, we organized a Rosh HaShana Minyan for our current students and alumni community. Our singles website, JLIConnections, has helped to connect students and alumni across our national OU-JLIC campuses, with thousands of suggested dates. We are proud to announce that FIVE couples have already gotten married!

We hope you will join us on our mission, continuing to change the face of Jewish Life in Brooklyn and inspiring the next generation.
