The "Jeopardy! National College Championship" featured 36 college students who went head-to-head for a $250,000 prize. Read about a handful of Jewish contestants who connected with their faith during the game.
Jewish identity isn’t necessarily about how many rituals you observe. It’s about the type of person you are and what you put out into the world.
The place that I've gotten to do a lot of my own personal passion projects in college has been Hillel. It's made me more of an active Jew, to see Judaism more as doing things for other people, with other people, than just an individual practice.
I felt like ‘Oh my God there's so many Jewish people that are in the States and they live such a different life and they have so much to say and I don’t know anything about it and I love my people,’ you know? I feel like we are one.
