Congratulations on your Acceptance to the Best University in the Country. We are sure you are going to love your next four years at school, and we can’t wait to get to know each and every one of you!! We know how uncertain so many things in life are right now: where are you going to live, who will be your friends, what transition from high school to college will be like, etc.
But, some things are clear to many of us: we know that we want a Jewish community away from home to celebrate the holidays with and have a support system to help us with this big change in our lives.
Hillel is here to support you, to help you find frinds, to help your Judaism along and to help with your evolution to college life.

Every yeay, Hillel celebrates annual Quilt on the Quad event at Emory. We are proud to host the largest collegiate display of the AIDS Memorial Quilt each year, and equally proud of our commitment to raising AIDS awareness and supporting such an important cause.
The AIDS Memorial Quilt was created by the family members and friends of loved ones who passed away from AIDS/HIV. The NAMES Project is a non-profit organization that manages the quilt, and was founded in 1987 as a way to honor and remember those lost to the disease.

Last week, Hillel Glazer, the inventor of HeatTrak, spoke with the members of JBiz’s roundtable discussion group. This Jewish entrepreneur created outdoor heated matting products to keep walkways free from snow or ice. He freely discussed his path to becoming an entrepreneurial success.
Out of college, Glazer had a great stable job with Standard and Poor’s. While most college business students can only dream of a job like this, after a couple of years, Glazer decided to leave S and P in search of a more personally fulfilling career. This daringness should encourage students to follow their passions, in addition to just a sizeable paycheck.

Last week the Emory Students for Israel held a discussion, debating how the US Presidential elections will affect Israel. Joining the conversation was Middle East history Professor, Dr. Ayalon, who greatly contributed to the conversation with his analysis of Obamaʼs and Romneyʼs views on Israel, and the Israelisʼ views on the candidates. Also contributing to the discussion was a representative of the College Republicans club and various members of Hillel. Discussion topics included Iran, the two state solution, and the ever changing political climate of the Middle East. Participants on both sides of the political spectrum enthusiastically debated which is the proper course the candidates
should take in the Middle East, should they win the Presidency. The future of the West
Bank was also passionately debated.
This discussion was an excellent demonstration that regardless of what we believe, as long as people can come together and voice their opinions in a civil manner about the issues that matter to them, we are fulfilling one of the most important aspects of democracy.
