VT Hillel celebrates.

Hillel students at Virginia Tech have pledged 850 volunteer hours in honor of Hillel's 85th Birthday. Through this "time raising" effort, these students will reach out to others on campus and ask them to donate their time and energy to work in the community - whether it be volunteering at a health clinic, soup kitchen, kindergarten.

"Social justice is such an important lesson in Judiasm. We are pledging 850 hours of community service to give back to the town of Blacksburg as a way to show our appreciation for the many opportunities Hillel has provided over the past 85 years," said graduating senior Shauna Horrell, one of the organizers of the effort.
