“We have one of the strongest Modern Orthodox communities on any college campus across North America, and that’s one of the reasons I chose this school.”
Hillel really helps me facilitate my Jewish life while I’m away from home. I take advantage of the opportunities for learning, prayer, and Jewish holidays that the Hillel community helps provide.
I’m also involved in Pizmon, an a capella group on campus that travels throughout the country and around the world. Pizmon brings Jewish music to Jewish communities that wouldn’t necessarily have access to performances like these.
