SoCalJSS recently held two events for area students, which were great.
On Sunday, the second SoCal area-wide Hillel Leadership Gathering took place, this one mid-year, which got 16 students from Chapman University, CSUF, CSULB, and UCI. Run in cooperation with Beach Hillel and Orange County Hillel and partially sponsored by a grant from the Rose Project of Jewish Federation and Family Services, Orange County, the program was held for student leaders in their respective Hillel groups.
On Thursday and Friday morning, SoCalJSS held its inaugural Torah Winter Learning Event (TWLE) in Long Beach. Sponsored by Deborah & Dr. Alan Gold, the TWLE was an opportunity to engage in some earnest study of Jewish texts. the topic under discussion was the Ten Commandments.
Both events were splendid and more information will be posted soon.
