The Harvard Jewish Alumni Network (HJAN) is a global community of Jewish alumni, faculty and staff from across Harvard University, run for and by Harvard alumni.
Founded in 2008, HJAN is an official Shared Interest Group of the Harvard Alumni Association and works collaboratively with Harvard Hillel, Harvard Chabad, Harvard’s Jewish Student Associations, and other individuals and organizations that share our vision of building a vibrant Jewish alumni community. HJAN is not yet a 501(c)3 non-profit organization but may become one in the future.
We support Harvard’s Jewish alumni in their personal and professional endeavors. Members support each other, share and learn from one another, make new connections, and volunteer and celebrate together. Join us to stay informed, make new friends, find jobs, mentor alumni and students, strengthen your local Jewish community, and much more!
HJAN aims to develop a worldwide network and sense of community among Harvard’s Jewish alumni, and help strengthen and support Jewish communities throughout the University.
- Serve as a professional and personal network, and an inclusive and supportive community, for Harvard Jewish alumni worldwide;
- Strengthen Harvard’s Jewish community, providing meaningful support for Jewish students, staff, faculty and alumni; and
- Support constructive alumni involvement in affairs that affect Jewish communities within the University
Membership is open to all Harvard alumni, faculty and staff, regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, religion, or sexual orientation. Members will share a commitment to the mission and goals of HJAN as stated above.
