is getting easier and easier
to live Jewishly on
Michigan's college campus-
es. Not only are universi-
ties beefing up their Jewish
Studies and graduate-level pro-
grams, but Jewish campus organi-
zations also are broadening their
offerings and working hard to
bring that homey feeling to stu-
dents, especially at holiday time.
At the University of Michigan,
the Oak Park-based Machon
LTorah-The Jewish Learning
Network of Michigan operates the
Jewish Resource Center, a popular
place of learning, worship and
companionship for Jewish stu-
dents of all streams of Judaism.
At Michigan State University,
Hillel opened its new Lester J.
Morris Hillel Student Center,
which will include meat and dairy
kitchens, two chapels, a student
computer lab, lounge space and a
gaming area with pool and foos-
ball tables.
Academic Jewish programs also
are thriving, with U-M offering its
first-ever master's degree in Jewish
Studies, for example. New leaders
take the reins at U-M's Sol
Drachler Program in Jewish
Communal Leadership and at
MSU's Jewish Studies program.
And Jewish students are
responding to all the rich
Today's Cover Story — creat-
ed by graphic designer Linda
Stinson and reported by Staff
Writers Diana Lieberman and
Shelli Liebman Dorfman as well
as U-M student free-lance writ-
ers Karen Schwartz and Richard
Dorfman — explores some of
the ways students can live
Jewishly on Michigan campuses.
