Month Of Thanksgiving

Hillel at EMU works hard to aid others at the holidays.

Danielle Friedman and Sydney Glass } jewish@edu writers

his November, Hillel at Eastern
Michigan University is taking part in
a variety of service projects in both
the Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor communities.
Reaching out to the surrounding areas and
offering support through projects and fund-
raising, our goal is to not only bring Jewish
life to campus, but also to be a voice of
support in our community during the holiday
season.
Our Chanukah drive will kick off our
month of giving, allowing us to help a local
Jewish family in need, by providing them
with a stress-free holiday season. We will
be selling hamsa bracelets on a daily basis
in the EMU Campus Student Center to help
raise funds for this cause, and we are excited
to reach out to our peers, family and friends
to help make a difference during this special
time of the year.
Additionally, on Friday, Nov. 22, Hillel at
EMU held a charity Shabbat dinner where
we hand crafted blankets to donate to the
Shelter Association of Washtenaw County. It
recently came to our attention that there is a

T

blanket shortage within the rotating shelter,
and we felt this would be a wonderful way
to give back to our local community.
Our charity Shabbat dinner will feature
student speakers who volunteer with the
Shelter Association, and we are reaching
out to other organizations to ask for their
participation in this philanthropic effort. Our
charity Shabbat dinner is free and open to all
EMU students.
As students, we often turn to our com-
munity to provide us with resources and
assistance, and we are hopeful that our
efforts will leave a positive impact on our
local community.
If you are interested in getting involved
with Hillel at Eastern Michigan University
or participating in its efforts to support the
local community, contact Sydney Glass at
