How do you “Repair the World?”

March 4th, 2014 · No Comments

What does it take to “repair the world?” In December, a group of fourteen Florida State University students embarked on a week-long community service retreat to Nassau, Bahamas as part of Hillel at FSU’’s Alternative Winter Break (AWB) program. During this journey, which took place from December 16 to December 23, students were able to participate hands-on with a variety of different non-profit organizations, aiding the Nassau community in many needed areas. While this experience was intended to help the people of the Bahamas, the students involved also gained knowledge and wisdom of the power in helping others and bonding with one another through the Jewish faith.

“All in all, this was an amazing trip full of different experiences impacting various communities that, in return, further solidified our love of service and provided us with better insight to our Jewish faith.” – Ashley Hakim

Make plans to join Hillel in the New Year in our new home. We’re planning a weekend full of activities. Join us for all or just the ones that fit your schedule. And, because “College Town” is just a block away, build in some time to walk around the neighborhood and discover what fine neighbors we have. We look forward to welcoming you home. All events are free and open to the community – except for the Wine Tasting portion which requests a small donation.

Welcome, Welcome Home Shabbat

Join us for a home-style Shabbat dinner in our new home
More than Jews have kept Shabbat, Shabbat has kept the Jews. We will be welcoming students, faculty, friends, and community members to a home-style Shabbat with singing, the warmth of community and a chance to share a meal. All your favorites from matzoh ball soup, roasted chicken and kugel, as well as some new choices and of course, delicious options for vegetarians. And, it’s all kosher as well.

At 7:00pm we’ll enjoy the unique musical pairings of OmniMusica directed by Dr. Michael Bakan. Omnimusica delivers what its name promises: a truly innovative and unique spin on the world of “world music.” Finish your evening with a walk, and perhaps dinner, in College Town just a block from our new home. *for 21+, suggested donation $18/person

About Hillel, Our New Home and College Town

It’s a New Year and a new home. We are excited to share our home and our good fortune with the entire community. Join us in celebrating the contributions both large and small that have resulted in our beautiful new home. We will be recognizing and honoring special people at each event.
If you have not visited this part of the FSU campus you may not know how much growth has taken place. The new Hillel is in the same block as our quaint old brick home of 30+ years at the corner of Pensacola and Woodward Streets. Our new home is on the corner of Woodward and St. Augustine Streets.
We are just blocks from the new weekend destination for the Tallahassee area – “College Town.” Enjoy walking around this pedestrian friendly area located just block a from Hillel. You’ll find a range of restaurants including Brooklyn Water Bagel and Pizza, Sushi, Cantina Mexican, and Madison Social. There’s a roof-top bar and other establishments to relax in. Urban Outfitters is just one of several retailers that are open or are opening soon.

Save 10% and Get In on the Ground Floor

Buy a Brick. Become a part of building our home and our future. You’ll find lots to love about our new place, but there’s still a lot of (behind-the-scenes) building that needs to go on. Over the next few weeks and months, we’ll let you know about other needs, but if you Buy a Brick, you’ll forever be in on the ground floor. Engraved bricks go for $150, but until the end of the year, you can claim one for just $136. Use the website to order – we’ll contact you for inscription details.
