Happy end of semester – Congratulations to Seniors

April 25th, 2014 · No Comments

It’s been a wonderful spring semester for Jewish life at FSU. We’ll be wrapping it up with our last shabbat of the semester and a tremendous senior sendoff Bagel Brunch on Sunday. To help you relax before finals there will be (in addition to food), puppies for petting (they do tricks, too), yoga and stretching for relaxation and an amazing tradition to help us separate from our seniors. See you there on Friday for Shabbat and dinner at 7pm and/or Sunday at noon for Beagle Bagel Brunch. Thanks to the Gomory family who sponsored this Bagel Brunchh in honor of Aniko Gomory. Congrats to her and all our seniors.

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
