Other Opportunities

Work for Hillel!

Are your Fridays feeling unreasonably unstructured? Are you wishing you had more time to listen to your favorite podcasts/sing along to Lizzo where no one cane hear you/catch up with your friends and family in far-flung locations? Do you have a car?

Oberlin Hillel is hiring a Shabbat Support Associate. We are looking for a responsible student with their own car for a weekly gig (midday Fridays) driving to the eastern suburbs of Cleveland to pick up our Friday night dinner order.

Pay: $10/hour + mileage (not federal work-study eligible. We are an equal opportunity employer.)

Other benefits: Leftovers! An excuse to visit Whole Foods and Trader Joe's. Rabbi Megan's undying gratitude.
