Nothing beats a Friendsgiving with our Hillel family! After going around the table to say what we are thankful for, everyone enjoyed a delicious homemade breakfast meal and some hot chocolate to cure the cold. All participants also engaged in various rounds of Game of Things, one of our all-time favorite games, and this time in person! To top off the night, ’22 E-Board election results were announced. Congratulations to our new E-Board!

Mental Health Awareness Night

A huge shoutout to to our Event Organizer, Kaela Milich for leading an awesome Mental Health Awareness Night! Another thank you to SJICR Director, Roxie Patton for being our keynote speaker. Your story was inspiring to all of us. The strategies and resources you shared will also be of great use to everyone moving forward. We ended the night with some mindfulness activities! All members colored in an inspirational quote related to mental health. Be sure to join us next Friday, November 19th for our Friendsgiving event!


Thank you to everyone who came out for a SPOOKTACULAR night! After a competitive game of Jeopardy led by our Senator Evan Grollman, all participants engaged in various rounds of What Do You Meme. We loved seeing our members’ costumes and wish everyone a happy and safe Halloween! Don’t forget to support us during our Landmark Fundraiser this upcoming Tuesday, November 2nd, and be sure to look out for details to come on our annual Mental Health Awareness Night taking place on Friday, November 12th!

Rowan United

Another successful Rowan United event in the books! Hillel and the Muslim Student Association (MSA) came together to engage in a meaningful discussion on various topics. In addition to talking about the commonalities between Judaism and Islam, participants discussed the significance and benefits of maintaining strong relationships among faith-based groups on campus. Thank you to everyone who contributed their own insights to make this event a valuable one!

Paint & Sip Night

Our first Paint & Sip Night was a huge hit! All participants expressed their creativity and de-stressed through canvas painting while sipping on drinks and enjoying some pizza. Be sure to join us for our next event taking place on Friday, October 15th – Rowan United!

Yom Kippur – Break Fast

Following a brief service to conclude Yom Kippur, all attendees enjoyed a delicious, sumptuous break fast meal homemade by our very own advisor, Marc Fleischner. A special thanks to local synagogue CBTBI for allowing us to livestream their services throughout the day. Stay tuned for more information on our next event – Paint & Sip Night!

Rosh Hashanah – Jewish New Year

Nothing beats ringing in the Jewish New Year on campus with our Hillel family! After dipping our apples in honey to signify the hope and excitement of a sweet New Year ahead, all attendees enjoyed a delicious, traditional Rosh Hashanah meal outside. L’Shana Tova to all, and we can’t wait to break the fast with everyone next Thursday, Sept. 16th on Yom Kippur. Be sure to join us for a sumptuous meal!

Welcome Back BBQ

A wonderful time was had by all at our Welcome Back BBQ! It was great to be back in person for our first event of the semester and to see so many new faces! In addition to introducing our E-board, attendees had the opportunity to socialize with one another and enjoy some delicious food and snacks. We can’t wait to ring in the new year with everyone at our upcoming Rosh Hashanah event next week! Stay tuned – more to come!

De-Stress with Hillel

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our last event of the semester! It was great to take a break from schoolwork to have some fun with our Hillel family. After a couple of rounds of Game of Things, we transitioned into Bingo. Congrats to all of our winners who received Barnes & Noble gift cards! We wish everyone the best of luck on finals and can’t wait to see you at our in-person events in the fall!
