DIVERSITY AND INTERNATIONALIZATION ARTIFACT #1: HEBREW ROOTS CLUB
For my project in Case Studies in Leadership 497 at Boise State University during the Summer of 2014 I chose to create a Hebrew Roots Club. This artifact showcases my ability to lead, execute and bring first-hand knowledge of a unique culture to a community that is deficient in this diverse demographic. Not only do I envision this club at Boise State, but I envision it having the potential of being duplicated on college campuses across the United States. Through this club members and the community are invited to learn the basics of the Hebrew language, Hebrew thought, the history of the Semitic culture and the application of Hebrew understanding in today's world, all infused with a belief in the Melchizedek priesthood and its Jewish Messiah, Rabbi Yahshua. This club enlarges the Boise State campus spiritually and culturally by giving students and the community the opportunity to understand and experience a Hebrew approach to life through the unique sights and sounds, tastes and textures, thoughts and interconnectedness that is Israel. Like-hearted students are able to find community and support or they can join us just to have fun and expand their cultural appreciation.
