Masorti on Campus was launched in July 2013 as a direct grassroots response to the closing of Koach by the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism.[4] Gaining the support of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America (JTS), MoC began its campaign to create an network for existing campus communities. In February 2014 the Seminary, along with Columbia University, hosted a student leadership conference.[5] In order to further connect students and build new communities Masorti on Campus announced a second conference with an expanded reach; speakers included the President of Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life.[6] One of the first campus communities to join the grassroots effort was Rutgers University.[7]

History

Masorti on Campus is the network for Traditional-Egalitarian & Masorti/Conservative Jewish communities on North American college campuses. Connecting college and university students who share the values of love of Torah, devotion to social justice, commitment to Israel and community as the future of Judaism. Working with campuses to foster pluralistic communities, with the goal of filling the academic year with powerful Torah learning in a traditional yet completely egalitarian environment. Using established communities as their starting point Masorti on Campus works to develop many community projects, including a series of student run regional and national Shabbatonim. Embracing the model of “students hosting students,” where students play host and a university’s Jewish life organization helps to coordinate, to form lasting connections and foster student empowerment. MoC is committed to promoting the growth of thoughtful Jewish adults, who value both tradition and egalitarianism.[3]
