  • Help us out and enter to win an Amazon Gift Card


    Cornell Hillel has been chosen to participate in an important project. In an effort to better understand Hillel’s impact, we, along with a few other Hillels around the country, are asking students to take a brief survey.

     

    Each and every response collected is important. Hillel is trying to reach as many students as possible on campus who identify as Jewish. If you can send out the survey link as widely as possible (on your listserv, social media, etc.) it would be much appreciated!

     

    Students who take the survey will be entered into a raffle to be one of three winners from their campus of a $125 Amazon gift card!
