  • SCSU Establishes New Hillel Chapter

    The Jewish community has always stressed the value of youth programs. It is easy to think that the older generation is more engaged, looking at the populations that attend our synagogue services. Yet there is far more to Judaism than worship.

I have anticipated this trip ever since I began sleep-away camp, seven years ago, as it’s the last summer our group spends together before becoming counselors.
