Are you a Jewish college student interested in connecting with others with similar interests and values?
Have you engaged in Jewish Reconstructionism or wanted to learn more about this contemporary form of Judaism?
If so, we hope you will join BRO, the Brandeis Reconstructionist Organization, from March 4-6 for their annual "ShaBROton." The weekend will include meeting other Jewish college students from across the country, praying, singing, hanging out, fun social events, interacting with the greater Hillel community at Brandeis, and having a great time together!
Last year's ShaBROton was a huge success and this year's event will be even better. On behalf of BRO, we would love to have you for the weekend.
Please RSVP (and feel free to send any questions) to Brianna Spatz. Registration and payment are due February 15, 2011. Please let us know as soon as possible if you wish to attend so we can began planning accommodations.
We hope to see you in March!
When I heard that Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs had invited President of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad—a notoriously anti-Semitic and anti-Israel figurehead—to speak on campus, my first instinct was to oppose the event vehemently. read more »
I reasoned that, if Columbia hosted an anti-Semitic figure on campus, Ahmadinjead’s could attempt legitimize his terrifying and historically incorrect viewpoints. Why should one of the most prestigious universities in the nation provide a platform from which a dangerous leader such as Ahmadinejad could deny the Holocaust and spew his advocacy for the destruction of Israel?
