Home Or School?

Jewish students have decisions — and conflicts —

when it comes to the High Holidays.

KAREN SCHWARTZ
Special to the Jewish News

ith classes starting and
Rosh Hashanah right
around
IVIIT the cor-
ner, many area univer-
sity students are mak-
ing plans to head
home for the holiday.
But some students
find themselves stay-
ing at school because
of commitments and
responsibilities they
just can't avoid.
With Yom Kippur
day falling on
Monday, Sept. 16, the
holiday is problemat-
ic. But even Rosh
Hashanah, falling on
the weekend of Sept.
6-8, poses a problem
for students still set-
tling in. Students will
be faced with a diffi-
cult question — how
feasible is it to take
the weekend off at the
beginning of the aca-
demic year?
For Brad Belsky, a
University of
Michigan junior,
going home to West
Bloomfield might not
be a possibility
because of his job as a
dormitory resident
adviser. Part of his job
is -making student res-
idents feel welcome
and helping them get comfortable,
and the start of the year is when they
need the most help.
"It's the first weekend of school and
most kids will still be getting accus-
tomed to school. It's my job to help,
so I'll probably stay up [at U-M] for
that," he said.
Belsky stayed at school last year as
well, taking part in services at the U-
M Hillel. Students at Michigan can
attend Orthodox, Conservative or
Reform services during Rosh
Hashanah and Yom Kippur by

requesting free tickets in advance.
About 2,500 students generally
attend.
Belsky liked the services, but noted
that it is "different from home. At

home, you're with the family, and my
family always gets together. At school,
you have to make your own circles to
get the family feeling," he said.
But there was no lack of home hos-
pitality available, he said. Jewish fam-
ilies in the area were more than will-
ing to open their homes to college
students. Friends as well as people he
didn't even know were inviting him
in for Rosh Hashanah dinner or to
break the Yom Kippur fast.
"The Ann Arbor community was
very welcoming. I'd be invited to a
