Reb Jevin Eagle, Boston University
Jevin Eagle, a former business executive and fifth-year Hebrew College Rabbinical School student, is excited to leverage his entrepreneurial talent, spiritual depth and passion for Hillel’s mission as the Executive Director of Boston University Hillel.
Prior to attending rabbinical school, Jevin Eagle was the CEO of DAVIDsTEA, a senior executive at STAPLES, Inc. and a partner at McKinsey & Company. He was one of the executives responsible for STAPLES’ Easy Brand Strategy and the famous “Easy Button.” Eagle says his career change from business to the Rabbinate was the fulfillment of a life-long dream to immerse himself in text study and serve the Jewish people. Illustrative of his commitment to the Jewish community while working in business, Jevin served as board chair of Harvard Hillel and Dartmouth Hillel from 2002 to 2006.
