BENEFITING: Hillel Foundation at the University of Arizona
Hillel Foundation at the University of Arizona wrote -As a Jewish student at the University of Arizona, Hillel has become a very important part of my student experience. In these very uncertain times, it is very comforting to have a place to go, to study, to learn, to participate and to eat with my fellow Jewish students. Walking into the building in the heart of campus, I feel as though I belong. From my first week as an incoming freshman, Hillel provided week-long activities that brought me together with other Jewish students. These “Welcome Week” activities not only provided me the opportunity to meet new students, but they also provided excellent food FOR FREE! The staff were warm and welcoming and the programs they suggested allowed us to become as involved as we chose. Whether it is Israelpalooza, Challah for Hunger, the Holocaust Vigil, Shabbat services and dinner, Hillel allows students to become engaged in community. As a student with not a lot of resources, I have come to understand how much Hillel depends upon the generosity of its donors to be able to provide these services to students. I made a gift, won’t you join me in supporting Hillel? Your gift today will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a generous Hillel supporter. Your gift of $54 becomes $108. Your gift of $108 becomes $216. Your gift of $144 becomes $288! Think of the number of my friends, our future Jewish leaders, who will benefit from your generosity.
