Dear WashU Student Community,
Our Hillel team is sad that the WashU student body won't be returning to campus for the remainder of the semester. We understand the University's decision to keep all of you safe and healthy and to show care and compassion for those who are vulnerable within our community and region.
We will miss seeing you at Shabbat dinners, Passover Seder and meals, and other programs; however, just as classes will go virtual, so will Hillel. During this period of uncertainty, your Hillel community will remain a constant. Pirkei Avot teaches al tifrosh min hatzibur - don't separate yourself from the community. In light of recent events, we may be separated by distance, but we will still have opportunities to come together.
In the coming days and weeks, there will be many ways for you and your friends to connect with your WashU Jewish community through interesting, relevant, and meaningful virtual content and programs. Please know the entire Hillel staff is always here for you - to chat, to be a resource, or to simply provide support during this challenging time.
IIn addition to the programs listed here, be on the lookout for additional curated digital content on our Instagram and and Facebook.
The WashU Hillel Staff
