Two-Line Torah

Two-Line Torah, a weekly email to all Hillel professionals and others who sign up, offers a thought based on that week's Torah reading to share with students, colleagues, and friends in a variety of contexts, including during a coffee date, at a Shabbat meal or service, or at the opening of a meeting. We hope that this will enable everyone in the Hillel community to engage in the timeless ideas that have inspired and guided the Jewish people throughout the centuries. Each week's message is short (100-150 words), written by a Hillel professional and/or student, and addresses the college experience.
