Student Engagement from 27

Hillel at EMU, but in my experience/' Silver
said, "Sukkot is a much less understood

holiday among young adults, many of whom
come to college never having celebrated

it themselves, so sometimes Hillel at EMU
needs to provide opportunities to learn

about aspects of Jewish life that aren't
already part of students' Jewish experiences
or on their Jewish radar."

Building on the success of Sukkot, Hillel at
EMU will leverage its new relationship with

the NJOP to respond to students' requests
for an informal beginning Hebrew class and
participate in "Read Hebrew America." The

NJOP provides the flash cards, wall charts

and student packets; Hillel at EMU provides
the space and expertise to teach the class.
"Leveraging partnerships with other

organizations allows Hillel at EMU to provide
content-rich, meaningful Jewish education
woven throughout the opportunities we

provide for students to celebrate Jewish life

without having to create all the materials on
our own," Silver said.

Students have already put their stamp on the
Hebrew class, and decided it should be a weekly

Sunday dinner at the Hillel house in addition to an
informal opportunity to learn Hebrew.

"As the only Jewish student group at Eastern, Hillel
at EMU is in a unique position to provide students

of all backgrounds with opportunities to connect to

Jewish life in the ways they find the most meaning-
ful," Hecht said. @
