Masorti on Campus (MoC) is the grassroots student organization for Traditional-Egalitarian, Conservative Judaism (also known as "Masorti") on North American college and university campuses; working with Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life and other Jewish campus life organizations. MoC connects students and Jewish professionals from different campuses through a range of forums to share ideas for building and strengthening progressive Jewish communities.

History

Masorti on Campus was launched in July 2013 by Eric Leiderman and Douglas Kandl as a direct grassroots response to the closing of Koach by the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism. Gaining the support of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America (JTS), MoC began its campaign to create a network for existing campus communities. In February 2014 the Seminary, along with Columbia University, hosted a student leadership conference. 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. One of the first campus communities to join the grassroots effort was Rutgers University.
