Hillel Offers Israeli Students a Jewish Identity
Last April, I had the distinct pleasure of visiting Haifa Hillel, one of the six Hillels in Israel. My bus group, as part of a mission to celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the UJA Federation of New York, sat down for an informal lunch with many Haifa Hillel students. As the lunch continued, each of our five tables became completely immersed in conversation with the students and were taken with how Hillel is changing lives in Israel, students and citizens alike. As strange as it may sound, it is difficult for many Israeli students to develop a Jewish identity and to learn about Jewish history, and Hillel provides an ideal space for that and much more. My group fondly remembers this lunch and is now able to understand the amazing work Hillel is doing not only in Israel, but around the world.

Meet Tanya Gutsol: From Hillel Kiev to Maryland JCSC Fellow
When Tanya Gutsol becomes a JCSC Fellow this year, she, along with around 70 recent college graduates, will move to a faraway college campus. But unlike her counterparts, Gutsol, currently the program director at Hillel Kiev, will need a visa and a passport. Born and raised in Kiev, Ukraine, she will face the exciting opportunity of engaging Jewish college students at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County -- students whose backgrounds distinctly differ from hers.
