CongraJEWlations to Our New Board Members

National Havurah Committee: a Week Long Opportunity this Summer
The National Havurah Committee (NHC) Summer Institute is a week-long, pluralistic retreat of grassroots Jewish learning and living. Among its 300 attendees are students, musicians, doctors, furniture makers, retirees, Jewish professionals, homemakers, teachers, young children, and activists, all committed to shaping the present, and future, of American Judaism. Last summer, the NHC held a program for college student leaders to engage in this dynamic community, with the focus of developing their davvening and leadership skills. In addition to the classes, workshops, prayer options, and rich personal interactions available to all attendees, the cohort of student leaders participated in a series of sessions devoted to learning the skills that make Hillel communities succeed. We are poised to continue this program at the 2012 NHC Summer Institute. The dates of this year’s Institute are August 6-12, and the conference takes place at Franklin Pierce University in Rindge, New Hampshire. We encourage schools to send two or more student leaders, so that they have peer support in implementing their new skills back on campus. If you are interested, please contact Rabbi Boraz and he will put you in touch with someone to get you more information,

JEW OF THE WEEK
Orli Kleiner is this week’s Jew of the Week. Orli is a ’12 and has served in numerous positions on the Hillel Board, including most recently as Treasurer. This week only, she has a solo exhibition of her jewelry at the Hop in the display case across from the Hinman boxes. This case will have jewelry that she was worked on spanning her four years as a Dartmouth student. So, be sure to go check it out! Also, great job Orli!!!
GOY OF THE WEEK
Carol Folt is this week’s Goy of the Week. This week, the college announced that she will be serving as the interim president of Dartmouth until the search committee finds a replacement for Jim Kim, who was selected as the new head of the World Bank. Because Ms. Folt is serving as interim president, the search committee will not consider her for the role of permanent president. For more information on our new interim president go to the D’s article: http://thedartmouth.com/2012/04/18/news/folt
JOKE OF THE WEEK:
A friend told me this joke earlier today and I thought it was rather fitting:
Q: What can cause the weather to dramatically change?
A: The prospies leaving Dartmouth! The sky is literally weeping over their departure.
Special Thanks to Everyone who helped out at all the Jewish Prospy Events!!
This is Rachel Funk, blitz me with any comments, questions, or concerns. Go dust off those rain boots and umbrellas because you’ll be needing them again this week!!
