Abby Calef

Jewish Communal Leadership Program Class of 2023

A Dallas, TX native, but raised in Ann Arbor, Abby Calef is eager to return back home to join the JCLP cohort. For the past two years, Abby has been working for Hillel Campus Alliance of Michigan where she served Hillels at 10 different college campuses across the state. Her work included program planning, interfaith work, antisemitism education, partnerships with faculty and staff and meetings with university presidents. She also supervised the Nefesh (women and wellness) internship program and the Engagement internship program. Abby’s Hillel work began during her time at Kalamazoo College, where she received a Bachelor of Arts in English and Jewish Studies. During college, Abby helped reinvigorate “Hillel @ K” where she served in leadership positions all four years, including president. She was also the appointed Department Student Advisor for the Jewish Studies program and taught Sunday and Hebrew school at the Okun Kalamazoo Community Jewish School. Abby was very active in the Jewish community in Ann Arbor, working at and volunteering with Jewish Family Services of Washtenaw County, and assistant teaching at Temple Beth Emeth and cannot wait to return. As she continues her education at the University of Michigan, Abby is passionate about sexual health education, racial justice and interfaith dialogue, making leadership development accessible, and will sing in any a cappella group she can find.
