Summer Fellowship Opportunity
The Uri L’Tzedek Summer Fellowship is a transformative leadership program that combines innovative social activism with leadership development and Torah. This full-time, 6-week program, from June 22nd-August 3rd, is an opportunity to work alongside Uri L’Tzedek’s staff and board, experiencing first-hand the many mechanisms that come together to create an effective non-profit organization, gaining exposure to communal Jewish life, effecting change, and learning Torah, social justice philosophy, and community organizing models. For more information please contact David Bookbinder at David.Bookbinder@utzedek.org.
Claudallah this Saturday, May 5th
Claudallah will be this Saturday! We know it’s first year family weekend but parents are more than welcome to attend! If you want to come, please RSVP by blitzing the Hillel account. For those of you who have never been, Claudallah is a celebration of Havdalah (the end of Shabbat) that Claudia hosts at her house with great food and conversation! If you would like more information, please see this past Friday’s blitz (or blitz the hillel account with questions).
Dartmouth Celebrates Israel and Palestine Week
April 30th through May 4th is Israel and Palestine Week: A Look at Conflict Through Culture. Israel and Palestine Week aims to reveal the human component of the conflict through showcasing different personal stories, cultural expressions, and dialogue. By bringing together movies that highlight various perspectives, we hope to enable individuals here to better understand how Israelis and Palestinians live through the conflict. And, through comedy and poetry, we want to gain an appreciation for the richness of the cultures in the region.
