Director of First Impressions

The Directors of First Impressions at Berkeley Hillel are a cohort of welcoming, friendly, attentive students who act as the face of the Hillel community. They work at the front desk and welcome new and returning people to the building, oversee the minute-by-minute needs of the lobby and lounge, and help Hillel be the safest, most welcoming community possible. Based on the principles of Audacious Hospitality, the Directors of First Impressions actively engage one-on-one and in group settings with all members of the Berkeley Hillel and UC Berkeley community to serve as the entry point for students to participate in a Jewish community.
