The Hillel Jewish student group on campus is a small but active group. Established in 2000, the group coordinates Jewish students for Shabbat and High Holiday services at either the local reform temple (Temple Emanuel) or conservative synagogue (Beth Israel). Throughout the academic year, the group meets to plan social and educational events as well.
The makeup of the membership varies from very Reform to very Conservative. We also have several members from interfaith backgrounds and non-Jewish students too. It is a nice blend of all perspectives. For more information, contact Hillel advisor Annalee Thompson or President of Hillel at Roanoke College Lexy Kantrowitz.
