Birthright Israel, Snow in Jerusalem and Giving Back
Until this week that is when Taglit Birthright Israel decided to send visiting trip participants to Mt. Herzl to help in the clean up efforts. The pictures below are from today when a group from Florida cleaned a large section of the graveyard where Yoni Netanyahu (the commander of the Raid on Entebbe), David Elazar – Israel’s 9th Chief of Staff and the American Lone Soldier, Michael Levin, who was killed in action during the Second Lebanon War, lay to rest.

Goldberg Leads New Hillel
The last school year was a turbulent one for Hillel of Broward and Palm Beach, which has its offices on the Florida Atlantic University campus in Boca Raton. There were several incidents involving the Students for Justice in Palestine chapter, the Hillel executive director left and University President Mary Jane Saunders resigned. When the 2013 school year began, Raina Goldberg was onboard as Hillel's new executive director, a new staff (except for one position) and board chairman were in place, and many more individuals from the Jewish community were on Hillel's board of directors. "Jewish life is alive and well at FAU," said Goldberg, 40, of Boca Raton.

A Night of Cultural Celebration
Four student organizations will co-host NSU’s first Cultural Night, a night of food, friends and dance on Oct. 24, 6 to 9 p.m., at the outdoor basketball courts of the Don Taft University Center Recreational Complex. The idea for Cultural Night was born through collaboration between the Caribbean Student Association, the Indian Student Association, the Pakistani Student Association and Hillel of Broward and Palm Beach, a Jewish organization. For the first time, all of these organizations have come together to put on a celebration for the NSU community.
