Tuesday, November 3 at 7:00pm:
 Holocaust Legacy: Empty Spaces, Fading First-Hand Memories, New Jewish Realities -More than 65 years since the end of World War II, the impact of the Holocaust still resounds in Europe—in fading memories, empty synagogues, and abandoned cemeteries; but also in new life, new realities, and new definitions of Jews and Jewishness. Award-winning author and journalist Ruth Ellen Gruber describes how the impact of the Shoah—followed by 40 years of Communism—is still a powerful backdrop, but she discusses how new forms of Jewishness, Jewish practice, and religious and cultural expression build toward the future.

News From Hillel International:
We are excited to introduce the inaugural Hillel International Student Cabinet! This group will work with students and staff on #Hillel campuses around the world to expand the impact of #Jewish life on campus. We need your help! What processes should we use to select the members of the Student Cabinet? Tell us what you think by filling out a short survey
