PLEASE AMPLIFY THIS BROADLY: The Restore Our Campuses Coalition (ROCC), a newly formed grassroots organization of students from colleges and universities across the United States, has sent a letter to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mike Johnson, and Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, requesting Congressional intervention to stop the “tsunami” of antisemitism sweeping American campuses. Students from more than 50 universities signed the letter, citing inaction by university leadership in the face of escalating incitement to violence, threats, and harassment of Jewish students.

Do I take time each day for personal accounting of my schedule and accomplishments?

Make a detailed plan for how you want to spend your day and at the end of the day see if you've lived up to it.

This week we continue Sefirat Ha'Omer, utilizing the seven dimensions of the
seven emotional attributes. The first week after Pesach was dedicated to examining the aspect of chesed, lovingkindness. The second week corresponds to the emotional attribute of gevurah, discipline or justice. If love (Chesed) is the bedrock of human expression, discipline (Gevurah) is the channel through which we
express love. It gives our life and love direction and focus Gevurah ― discipline and measure ― concentrates and directs our efforts, our love in the proper directions.

Before you criticize someone today, think twice: Is it out of concern and love?

While “Free Palestine” protesters on campus are openly supporting Hamas and its military wing- many are ignorant to what that really means. They are supporting terrorists who call for Jewish genocide, further the indoctrination of jihad and want to destory the state of Israel.  #metoounlessyourajew #bringthemhome #gethamasoffcampus #ceaseholdinghostages #ceasekidnapping #curbyourantisemitism #endjewhatred #freethehostages #freepalestinefromhamas #hamasisisis #neveragainisnow #ownyourstar #releasethehostagesnow #standwithisrael

For love to be complete, it must have the dimension of personal sovereignty.

Hod introduces the aspect of humility in love; the ability to rise above yourself
and forgive or give in to the one you love just for the sake of love even if you're convinced that you're right.

Swallow your pride and reconcile with a loved one with whom you have quarreled.

Let’s Stop Hate with Jewish Pride

For 2,000 years, the Star of David has been a proud symbol of Jewish heritage. But it has also been used to terrorize the Jewish community and spread hate.

And antisemitism is rising again. Since October 7, more than half of Jewish college students feel less safe on campus, and 1 in 3 students say they need to hide their Jewish identity. And we are recording the highest levels of antisemitism on campus…ever. That’s not okay.

Hillel is calling on our community to stand up to rising antisemitism right here, right now: It’s time to #OwnYourStar this Hanukkah and let our stars and Jewish pride shine even brighter.
