"Last week when I was sitting in Statler Auditorium listening to Josh Radnor speak, I reflected on my time at Cornell. If I had not joined a Hillel committee freshman year, I don’t know if I ever would have found the great community that Hillel is for me. The Major Speaker Series Committee has led me to great friendships, leadership opportunities, and the experience of meeting some cool speakers, including Aly Raisman and Josh Radnor. I hope you join a Hillel committee, too, so you can start your time at Cornell by becoming part of the amazing Hillel community."
We invite the Cornell community to Friday night dinner* and a presentation by African-American Jewish activist Yavilah McCoy.
Join us for a discussion covering the practice of holding multiple identities within efforts to build greater equity and justice in the challenging political and social climate of 2018, the challenges of diversity and inclusion on college campuses, and opportunities students can engage in working together toward justice.
Check-in for dinner begins at 7:00 PM, the meal is served at 7:30 PM, and the presentation begins at 8:30 PM.
Anyone can apply for this awesome way to get involved in shaping Jewish community life at Cornell! Applications are due on September 12th, 2017 at 4:00 PM. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Cornell Hillel President Brandon Cohen or Executive Vice President Danielle Eiger.
Join Kesher (Cornell Hillel's Reform Jewish group) for pre-Rosh Hashanah apple picking! We'll meet at the Appel Commons parking lots and will drive to Indian Creek Farm for apple picking. We'll be at the orchard for about an hour and a half.
If you have a car that you'd be willing to use to carpool or have questions, please contact Jonah Rothstein.

Author Shulem Deen will discuss his National Jewish Book Award-winning book All Who Go Do Not Return, a sensitive memoir about growing up in and then leaving the community of Skver Hasidim in Rockland County’s New Square, one of the most insular Hasidic groups in the United States.
Calling all bookworms! Join the Jewish Kindle Club this semester. We read a wide variety of books having to do with Judaism. Past picks include All Who Go Do Not Return by Shulem Deen (who is coming to Cornell this fall), Here I Am by Jonathan Safran Foer, and Let There Be Water by Seth Siegel.
Our first book of the semester will be The Great Partnership by Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks (yes, he was actually knighted). The last day to grab a copy is tomorrow. Contact Jacob Kranitz for more information on how to join!
