For the next eight days and eight nights, let’s show the world that antisemitism has no place to hide when our stars shine EVEN brighter this Hanukkah! 

Share a photo or video on Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat, or Facebook and use the hashtag #OwnYourStar to showcase YOUR Jewish pride—whether that’s by displaying a Star of David on your necklace, your favorite menorah, spinning dreidels, sizzling latkes, or sharing a memorable Jewish experience.

Newport, Rhode Island is home to the oldest Synagogue in the United States of America. We have come a long way for our freedoms.❤️🇺🇲✡️

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.

Do I give and withhold love according to my moods or is it constant regardless of the ups and downs of life?

Today, reassure a loved one of the constancy of your love.

Compassionate love is given freely; expects nothing in return ― even when the other doesn't deserve love.  Tiferet is giving also to those who have hurt you.

Today, offer a helping hand to a stranger.

With the mitzvah of counting the 49 days, known as Sefirat Ha'Omer, the Torah invites us on a journey into the human psyche, into the soul.  Each of the seven weeks between Passover and Shavuot is dedicated to examining and refining one of them.

Love allows us to reach above and beyond ourselves, to experience another person and to allow that person to experience us. 

As we began counting, find a new way to express your love to someone you care about.

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.
