Hillel Holds Annual Rosh Hashana Celebration

Welcome Year 5783!

Rowan Hillel kicked off the Jewish New Year with some delicious food, cooked by Advisor Marc Fleischner. We spend our celebration with both new and old friends. After sharing our Jewish New Year’s Resolutions, we were joined by special guest, Raymond Wos and other members of the Rowan Student government DEI Committee.

After our introductions, we all engaged in a meaningful conversation about Rosh Hashanah and our perspectives as Jewish students of Rowan University.

Hillel Holds CBTBI Social Event

Our CBTBI Social Event was a great way to introduce Hillel Members to our local synagogue. Congregation B’nai Tikvah-Beth Israel has always been a friend of Rowan Hillel and welcomes any Rowan student with open arms. At our virtual service, Rabbi Rachel and the newly Bar Mitzvah-ed boy lead the Friday Evening services.

Before the service, Hillel Members talked about our second week of classes, shared pizza from Ciconte’s, and broke the ice with some fun games.

Rowan Hillel Kicks of the Year with our Welcome Back Shabbat!

Our Fall 2022 Welcome Back Shabbat was a great way to kick off the semester. Hillel saw a bunch of new and returning faces. Everyone bonded over Pizza from Ciconte’s outside at Memorial Circle. By the end of the event, everyone was in awe of the Harvest Moon. The bright shine was a great way to end the night, and gave everyone a glimpse of the new, bright semester ahead of us.

We are so excited to engage Rowan’s Jewish Community and have a lot in store for the rest of the semester. Thank you to everyone who came out, stay tuned for more events to come!

Welcome Back Event!

It was great to reunite with our Hillel family after Winter Break. We had some old and new faces at our Welcome Back Event! First, we all went around and introduced ourselves. Then, we had some great laughs while playing our new favorite, “Game of Things.” To end the night off, we played some fun Brain Teaser and Pop Culture Kahoots! It was an awesome night, and we can’t wait to see everyone again for our next event!

Hillel Organizes Candle Light Vigil to Remember Victims of Pittsburgh

On October 29th, Hillel, in conjunction with Rowan Chabad and the Rowan Center for Holocaust and Genocide center held a candlelight vigil to remember the victims of the horrific incident in Pittsburgh.  Approximately 200 people attended the event.  Several students and staff spoke about their experiences with Anti-Semetism.  Kaddish and the victims names were also read.

Prior to the vigil a group discussion was held for those who wanted to speak.

In Response to Pittsburgh
