Shalom! This week is Israel Week on campus, a week focused on highlighting Israel's achievements, culture, and strides towards peace. It's so important to raise awareness on campus about all the positive aspects of Israel, and to bring together the Jewish community through our joint support. I'm looking forward to all the interesting speakers this week, and the Aroma Iced Coffee at Lilah Lavan!
Hope to see you all there!
