Rabbi Yonah spent the week at the International Hillel Convetion, an annual 600 person event in Stamford CT. Hundreds of professionals from all parts of the Hillel system, and many other speakers and presenters, spent the day hunkered down in sessions, and eating delicious, kosher food.
It was an opportunity to not only tell what we have been doing this last year, but also to see that the lack of educators and spiritual advisors on campuses in not restricted to SoCal.
Campuses across the country that serve tens of thousands of students do not have regular educators or rabbis to help with the Jewish enrichment of Jewish college life.
SoCal JSS was started to fill this gap. Allen Alevy saw the need, and the rest is what we have done for the last year.
Wishing everyone a very Happy and Healthy Chanukah!
