Welcome back, returning students! And welcome to Evergreen for our new freshman and transfers!  We’ve got a lot in store for you this year, in addition to our Sukkot offerings.  Below, you’ll find a link to our newsletter which tells you all about upcoming events, including a chamber music concert in Tacoma, and the first 28 tickets are just $5 each!  If you’d like to attend, please email immediately letting her know your interest, and confirmation.  The newsletter also includes information about some of our returning Board members, a registration form for you to fill out and give back to us, whether by printing it out, and giving it to Nikki in the Student Activities office, or emailing it to, and information on other exciting activities we have in store for you!

The start date for Read Hebrew America has changed however, due to a leadership conference the Board has been invited to.  We will be starting October 15th, at 4pm, and it’ll likely be in Sem 2 E2105, followed by a shabbat potluck!  If you’d like to be involved in Read Hebrew America, or attend the concert, please let Anneke know immediately! RSVP by October 1st at the latest. Send mail to her at and if you’re going to be involved in the Hebrew program, please include your full name and address, as our sponsors would like to verify that each of us truly exists. (Though I personally think that’s a relative statement, especially when you get Greeners involved.)

Please be sure to thank the Chabad Jewish Discovery Center in Olympia for their generous donation of our Sukkah for the year, as well as Temple Beth Hatfiloh for our lulav and etrog sets.

Best wishes for a healthy, happy New Year,


Hey Hillelniks,

We’re in the middle of Sukkot now, and just a reminder that today is our Sukkah Hop.
Celebrate Sukkot with us as we nosh our way through the Olympia Jewish community. Meet us on campus at the Sukkah in Red Square at 11am if you plan on Hopping with us. From campus, if there are enough of us, we’ll bus downtown to Temple Beth Hatfiloh for their vegetarian potluck lunch beginning at noon. Please bring a dish to share.

From there, we walk to Chabad for Sushi in the Sukkah! We’ll learn to make sushi, in addition to having pre-prepared sushi available to eat. :)

We will conclude the day with a fabulous meal, and a roasting of the marshmallows at Sherri Shulman’s home.

Please bring bus fare, however, if there are five or less of us, I will drive.

Also remember, our Sukkot Potluck is this Tuesday evening at 8pm! We will meet at the Sukkah in Red Square, and then move to a nearby location for the potluck. Celebrate the Autumn Harvest with us as we gather together to share in a bountiful harvest of these fruits of the earth, while partaking in the tradition of giving back to the community! For the potluck, please bring a seasonally inspired vegetarian or vegan dish, and something to donate to the Student Food Bank on campus. Bring your friends! The more, the merrier!
