Year Update

Dear Visitors,

This year we did not use the website much, but we have been busy doing many other Jewish things. Here are some highlights from the last year

We have started staying after we clean up from Shabbat dinner to sing songs, rounds, and niggunim. It’s a great opportunity to learn and teach new melodies, and singing together brings us all closer.

We had hanukkah events every night of the holiday all across campus. Various students signed up to do different things every night. We had a latke party, a nigun workshop with Joey Weisenberg, a craft night, bar mitzvah party, and lots of folk songs.

We had challah baking sessions throughout the year, which sometimes went to hilarious places.

Our members participated in multiple interfaith storytimes, we brought Ori Shavit to run a cooking class, hosted a screening of the documentary Little White Lie with SASS, had a Tu Bishvat study break, and ran a stand at the night market for prospective students. During passover, we pooled resources and took turns cooking dinner every night passover, and had two seders, one led by Adam, the Jewish Student advisor, and one led by students.


Happy birthday, trees!

Oh, and at some point, this happened:
