A New Beginning at CU Boulder Hillel

CU Boulder Hillel kicked off the new school year with a phenomenal Welcome Back Shabbat BBQ, where over 80 students attended! Additionally, the student leaders and staff of CU Boulder Hillel hosted a series of Welcome Week events every day last week, interacting with and engaging over 200 individual students. Programs included handing out Bagels, Hillel on the Hill at Half Fast Subs, Yoga sessions, and making/distributing challah.

Executive Director Seth Reder shared:

“It is so exciting to see our students engaged in such a meaningful way with Hillel. Knowing that we are able to create a home away from home and help foster genuine community amongst our students is truly humbling.”

Following the Welcome Week programming, CU Boulder Hillel staff have now shifted their focus to Birthright recruitment and High Holiday services and programming. Over the next few weeks, CU Boulder Hillel will recruit roughly 80 students to participate in their Winter Birthright trips. Additionally, High Holiday programming and services will take place at Hillel.
