Beyond Bagels: Meet the Hillel Rabbis!
Sep 8 @ 7:00 pm – Sep 8 @ 9:00 pm

Learn about commonalities between various Jewish denominations, beyond (just) a common affinity for bagels! This installment in the ongoing Beyond Bagels series will be an opportunity to meet the rabbis on Hillel’s staff: Rabbi Reed (Conservative), Rabbi Frieberg (Orthodox) and the new reform staff person, and ask them any questions you have about the denominations with which they identify. It will be a moderated panel discussion with questions for the panelists to start the conversation, followed by small group discussions which will engage all attendees. This will be a great opportunity for new students to meet some of the Hillel staff, older students to get to know them better, and for all to gain a more nuanced perspective on similarities and differences between the 3 major American Jewish denominations. Bagels will be provided!
