We are so excited for school to start back up at CSUSM! We have a variety of programs for students over the first 2 weeks of school that will welcome them to campus and to our Hillel starting with our Coffee Stop on the first day of school. This tradition started last year when student leaders expressed a desire to have a space to catch up, relax, and engage with new and returning Jewish students. Students have articulated that having Hillel there for them on the first day of school has made them more confident and comfortable with the new semester.
Our bagel program will continue every Tuesday during U Hour (12-1pm with no classes scheduled). This is a chance for students to meet weekly, socialize, and learn about upcoming events at Hillel.
Week 2 is jam packed with great opportunities including our annual Welcome Back BBQ and Schmooze, Challah Baking, and our first Shabbat Dinner of the semester.
