On September 20, Vice President Izzy Wellman and mysel met with members of the Student Government Association’s executive board: President Rbrey Singleton, Vice President Michael Webster, and Student Affairs representative Michael Viola. At this meeting we discussed the rescheduling of the Organization Fair to Yom Kippur, the holiest Jewish holiday, and the conflict that this rescheduling posed to the Jewish organizations on campus. Concerns were communicated and resolutions were offered by the SGA representatives. These resolutions included the introduction of an amendment to the SGA bylaws to make it so no SGA sponsored events can be held on major religious holidays as well as a promise to be more mindful about the days chosen for events to be held on.

We will continue to work with SGA on making sure there is follow through to this bylaws change, as well as how they can further assist us in the future.

Sincerely,

Ally Wasdick, ’18

Participating in our first service project of the semester, members of Rowan Hillel made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for Cathedral Kitchen.  So much more than a “soup kitchen,” a member of the Cathedral Kitchen team spoke to our students about all of the services provided by their organization.   In addition to serving over 100,000 meals annually, Cathedral Kitchen has a culinary arts program that give training to residents in the Camden area.  For more information about Cathedral Kitchen, please visit their website at http://www.cathedralkitchen.org/
