Health Me Through Exams @ Red Lion Cafe
Dec 12 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Exams week is the last week of each semester. It’s time to start thinking and studding together with friends but let’s be honest – we always do it with unhealthy snacks, so why not doing it differently?

Rutgers Hillel is inviting you for a healthy Israeli break from studding.
Students will get the chance to speak with a dietician about their eating habits, eat healthy Israeli food, get free massages, and rub their skin with the great products from the lowest place on earth – the Dead Sea.
