What is it exactly that we do at Hillel, well here is what we plan to do this quarter:

TUESDAY 10/7- Falafel and Movie Night (SC)

Falafel? What? Where? Come and Snack on one of Israel's greatest natural resources (at least it felt like it grew on trees while I was in Israel). While you are stuffing your face with delicious food, we will be having our annual showing of everyone's favorite Israeli movie....Walk On Water.


Plan on going on Birthright soon? Want to impress your friends with a little hebrew? Just want to learn a little hebrew for fun? We will have a professional Hebrew teacher come to Hillel to teach us some basic Hebrew. Snacks will be provided.

F 10/17- Shabbat Dinner (SC)

Interactive Shabbat Dinner? Who has ever heard of such a thing, OY VEY what a Shanda! Learn to cook easy versions of Shabbat Dinner favorites.

T 10/21- Night out on Bellingham (Meet at Shalom Center)

Join Hillel for a night out. We will be starting out at the shalom center with some snacks, then we will take the bus downtown to go bowling, after bowling a few frames, we will end at the Cobra Lounge Hookah Bar. You might ask, "isn't that going to be really expensive for me, the average Western Student?"...don't worry, the only thing you need to pay close attention to when the event is going to take place. (BRING SOCKS SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO BUY ANY)
