CELEBRAT

dinner by a friend and the friend
would say, 'Invite anybody you know
that needs a place for dinner.' It's dif-
ferent from home, but it's kind of like
a little family within Ann Arbor."
Gabriel Podolsky from Huntington
Woods has stayed at school for Rosh
Hashanah and Yom Kippur the past
two years, attending services at
Congregation Moses in Kalamazoo
instead of at Congregation Shaarey
Zedek in Southfield.
The Western Michigan University
junior remained at school last year.
He skipped classes to go to services,
but did not come home because of
the travel time involved. "Services
were right across the street from
campus," he said.
Western students can attend near-
by Reform and Conservative congre-
gations by getting in touch with the
campus Hillel program director.
More than 30 students attended serv-
ices last year. Western's Hillel also
organizes an annual break-the-fast
meal for students and faculty.
The convenience might convince
him to stay again this year, Podolsky
said. "It's different people but they
pretty much do all of the same stuff.
It's different not being with your
family for it, but that goes the same
for everything when you go to col-
lege."
Even if students have the chance
to go home, Michigan State
University junior Sherie Rappoport
said they should try staying at school
for the holidays just for the experi-
ence.
This year, MSU's Hillel will be
offering services on both days of
Rosh Hashanah and a learning ses-
sion between its two services on Yom
Kippur. Hillel will also be hosting
meals and a break-the-fast event, all
taking place at its new building.
Rappoport of West Bloomfield said
taking part in services with more
than 100 of her peers is "definitely
something I'd recommend." She
stayed on campus last year even
though she only lives an hour away
because the holidays were in the
middle of the week. This year, she
plans on going home for. Rosh
Hashanah and staying at school for
Yom Kippur.
"It was really nice. There were not
only students there, but community
members as well, and it was nice
being able to be with friends from
school and spend time with them
during the holiday," she said. "I liked
it, and I definitely wouldn't have a
problem staying up at school
again." ❑
