Hillel’s Happenings by Kelsey Kunstadt

Welcome Back BBQ

Pictured above: Juniors: Ari Feldman, Carly Russo, Stephanie Arkin, and Adam Polokoff enjoy snow cones at the Welcome Back BBQ this past Sunday.

The energy and happiness at Bloom Hillel is alive! Just a few weeks ago, we welcomed back returning Hillel students and welcomed the incoming freshmen class of 2018. The Welcome Back BBQ was a huge success with more than 170 students, faculty, and WOW visitors who attended. The annual Freshmen Week of Welcome events had a great turn out. We are looking forward to getting to know the freshmen class.

The Hillel board members, interns, and board of trustees are so excited for the increase in numbers Hillel is seeing. The fun continues as we create amazing Shabbat experiences for students.  Our first Shabbat dinner; the theme was southern style. We also have a new Homestyle Shabbat initiative and a Luau Shabbat!

Bama Hillel is now on Instagram! Be sure to follow us today at: bamahillel and use the hashtag #BamaHillel when tagging pictures of you and your friends at events. Stay tuned for more news on Hillel’s Happenings. Have a safe and fun Labor Day weekend!
