Peace, everyone!

We’re less than a week away from the most awesome event of the year! THIS FRIDAY is our bagel breakfast (with kosher dairy/vegetarian and gluten-free options!) with unlimited laser tag, lots of bounce houses to satisfy our eternal inner-children and release the stress from the end of the quarter, and a 5-story climbing structure with slides, punching bags, obstacles, and more!! Get your tickets/RSVP SOON. Especially if you have dietary restrictions. We need RSVPs with food options chosen (unless you have no special needs dietarily) by Tuesday evening. Send those RSVPs, if you can’t purchase your tickets immediately, to otherwise tickets are available at the door for $25.

For those of you who are worried about price, this is the best deal in the area for laser tag! And no other place offers bounce houses and crawly spaces or slides for adults! (Even if we don’t want to admit we are.) Not only is it the best deal in the area period, but for less than the price of an unlimited wristband purchased at regular price, you’re also getting breakfast out of the deal, AND we have the place to ourselves until Charlie’s opens its doors to the public at 11am!

If you’re unfamiliar with laser tag, there’s a link to explain how it plays. (Though Charlie’s doesn’t provide score cards, that’s the only real exception to the game play style, except for the 2-story towers in the Charlie’s Safari Laser Tag space!!!)

Laser tag is a LOT of fun whether you’re an absolute beginner, or a seasoned vet! Think the recent Zombies at Evergreen events, but take out the zombies, add laser guns (phasers), and make it all glow under blacklight! Personally, as a lover of things futuristic and science fiction, I think it’s grand we have a laser tag setup like THIS in the area!

If you want to see how gameplay actually happens, there are lots of youtube videos on that, or watch the old Laser Tag commercials from 1986. They’re a riot!

Signing off and hoping to see many of you bouncing, climbing, sliding, or in the laser tag arena,

Coordinator, Evergreen Hillel

Photos of the 4 dead at Kent State on May 4 1970

On May 4, 1970 the Ohio National Guard opened fire into a busy college campus during a school day. A total of 67 shots were fired in 13 seconds. Four students: (clockwise from Top Left) Allison Krause, William Schroeder, Sandra Scheuer, and Jeffrey Miller were killed protesting the war in Vietnam, as well as covert plans for invasions of Vietnam’s neighbouring countries.

Three of the 4 dead were Jewish.  The total Jewish population of Kent State University at the time was 5% of the campus student body.

Join us on Wednesday, May 5, as we commemorate and discuss the legacy of the Kent State 4. We’ll meet in Sem 2 E2105 at 2pm.
