Rutgers : A Great Place to be Jewish! Winter Break is here, is ending, and campus is quiet — except for the sounds of construction at 70 College Avenue, site of the future Eva and Arie Halpern Hillel House! If you are interested in specific Hillel events and programs, I invite you to Like us on Facebook , go to our website and subscribe to our weekly email. In this Update I want to share with you my reflections on a semester of incredible change, progress and excitement at Rutgers Hillel. After all, a Jewish organization, serving Jewish students, promoting Jewish identity and Jewish community better have some idea of what being Jewish means. If you examine all the various works that try to explain Jewishness, whether by rabbis or atheists, by philosophers or zealots, converts or Cohanim , there is something common to all.

Quarantined college students created Hillel on Facebook – The Forward
A potentially tough transition to college became a positive and life-changing experience. The following year, Julia became a Hillel engagement intern and helped another first-year Jewish student find Hillel and blossom at Elon. Together, they decided to establish a scholarship to support students serving in the Hillel Engagement Internship program. Hillel engagement interns are second-year students who act as ambassadors for the Sklut Hillel Center. They develop strong connections with first-year students through one-on-one interaction and mentoring. We were looking to give back to Elon because of what it has meant to Julia. The engagement internship seemed to be the right way to express our gratitude.

With classes cancelled around the country, Jewish college students are unable to meet their Jewish friends at Hillel for Shabbat dinner, social justice projects or just to hang out. But in less than a week, a virtual community with nearly 8, members has emerged to fill that gap: a Facebook group called Zoom University Hillel.
