Hello and Good Afternoon,

I want to thank everyone who made our bake sale possible, those of you who baked and those of you who bought; you made it a great success. We raised over $100 in two days. We couldn’t have done it without your help.

This week April 23rd-29th we have a busy week planned. Tuesday and Wednesday we will be having Bake Sale in the CAB, on the main floor from 11am-2ish.

Wednesday we also have our weekly Hillel meeting in SEM II A32017, come join a committee, help plan future events and schmooze with other Jews.

Also we will be having a Jewish/Hebrew game night on Wednesday at 7pm in Mod 303 B (Student Housing)

Sunday April 29th Rabbi Joseph Telushkin will be speaking in Portland. The topic of his lecture is “Judaism: What is the goal?” His lecture will be at Congregation Shaarie Torah, and is free to students with a valid student ID. If you would like to come, please email us at, so that we might help you make appropriate arrangements.

Hi, I hope everyone had a great Passover and that your quarter is going well. This Friday April 20th, Hillel is having a Potluck Shabbat Dinner in Sem II A2105. It is a dairy meal, so anything along those lines that you want to bring, please do.  I hope to see you all there.

Moses vs Pharoah, Ali vs Forman, Kirk vs Kahn…

Great rivalries have existed since the beginning of time and it appears that we are now living in the era of Dershowitz vs Finkelstein. The New York Times posted a great article today about these two professors that seem to just keep bumping heads over Zionism, Israel, Judaism…

“If the longstanding fight between two professors, Alan Dershowitz and Norman Finkelstein, was under the jurisdiction of family court, a judge could issue restraining orders and forbid inflammatory statements. But, alas, this nasty and zealously pursued feud is taking place in scholarly precincts, so each protagonist is continuing his campaign, unhampered, to destroy the other’s professional reputation and career.”

Tomorrow services for the 8th day of Passover will begin at 9:30am at Congregation B’nai Torah. Feel free to attend and help make a minyan.

Who doesn’t love bread? I sure do. Tomorrow night at 6:30pm in the Longhouse (on Evergreens campus) Hillel is having a Chametz Potluck to celebrate the end of Passover. Since now we can eat bread, pastries and all of those other forbidden foods. Bring foods that you enjoy eating on or with Pizza. Dough, sauce, cheese and drinks will be provided. Can’t wait to see you all there.
