Welcome back (or just welcome) to everyone! Cornell Hillel is excited to start a new year full of awesome programming! From services and Shabbat dinners to volunteer opportunities and the Big Red Bar Mitzvah, there are many events we plan to put on during the year. This means we'll need people who want to help, so join a Hillel committee, where you can meet new people, become a leader in the community, and help execute our vision for the coming year!
Hang with Hillel!
Get to know the Cornell Hillel programming staff all over campus!
Sundays: Join JLIC for brunch and an introductory Talmud class! Students of all levels and backgrounds are invited to participate and encouraged to bring a friend.
Mondays: Start off your week by meeting new friends over board games and food! Have a game you want to teach everyone? Bring it!
Tuesdays: This Week in Jewish History: Come take a dive into the timeline of Am Yisrael and explore various topics about where we were during years past.
Wednesdays: No nonsense; just some Jews talking 'bout the news.
Thursdays: An informal discussion over coffee for all those interested in American and Israeli politics!
Fridays: Practice your Hebrew by reading the lyrics of popular Israeli songs, learn about Israeli culture, and discuss Israeli society with coffee and delicious pastries.
Anyone can apply for this awesome way to get involved in shaping Jewish community life at Cornell! Applications are due on September 8th, 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.
Food for Thought: New Year, New You
A week of classes has come and gone, and the Jewish new year is around the corner. Let's talk about what it means to move through new beginnings in an intentional and mindful way. Could Jewish traditions have something to say about this strange project of learning full time?
Come to RPCC 220 on Tuesday, August 29 at 9:00 PM to discuss.
This event is a partnership between Cornell Hillel and the Center for Jewish Living.
Challah for Hunger is a national organization where students bake and sell challah every week to raise money for hunger relief. Baking is every Thursday in 104 West's kitchen, and sales are 10:00 AM-1:00 PM on Ho Plaza every Friday. Delicious flavors including cinnamon sugar, raisin, chocolate, chip, and plain are available for just $5 a loaf.
Shabbat Dinner every Friday at 104 West
7:00 PM Check-in. Dinner is served at 7:30 PM. Pre-register here before noon on Friday for just $10, made possible by a generous subsidy from Cornell Hillel. Walk-ins are also accepted for $2 more.
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.
We are always taking suggestions for the next book to read. Contact Jacob Kranitz for more information on how to join!
