Ithaca College Hillel is excited to announce and warmly welcome Julie Boden Adams as our next Executive Director, starting on July 8. 

Julie brings extensive expertise as a higher education administrator, both serving as an attorney by trade and consulting with clients such as NYU and Long Island University. Most recently she operated her own boutique law firm. She has also served in a volunteer capacity in the Jewish community and has several years of fundraising and nonprofit experience through leadership roles in Cornell Law School Dean’s Special Leadership Committee and as Chair of the Board Advancement Committee of Speyer Legacy School.

We want to share these comments from Julie with you: “Joining Hillel at Ithaca College as the next executive director is a dream come true. Lauren Goldberg's remarkable achievements during her tenure inspire me, and I am humbled and grateful to build on her successes. Hillel profoundly impacted my Jewish journey as a college student, and I am excited to help provide a safe and joyful place for the next generation. I look forward to using my skills to further my passion for Jewish education and community-building in this very special place that values diversity and inclusivity. My family is thrilled to move back to Ithaca, which holds a special place in our hearts and is where my husband and I met and were married.”
