This Past Week at Hillel SV
This past Friday for our Israel Learning Fellowship program, Daniel, our Israel Fellow, led a session about Zionism in the 21st century. He then led a discussion on the Jewish democratic character of the State of Israel, Israel's Declaration of Independence, and the Status Quo Agreement. 

Later on Friday evening, students led Shabbat services and enjoyed an Israeli-themed meal as part of Birthright Shabbat.
