Parents, it's been a great semester at Tulane Hillel! Thanks so much for all of your support and for being a part of our community. From our First-Year Family Welcome Event to Homecoming, from Sushi in the Sukkah to Charcuterie Competitions, it's been quite a year so far. Enjoy having your student home for winter break, and we're wishing you a happy early Chanukah! See below for a recap of recent events, plus what to expect around the corner.

Make Your Year-End Gift

It's that time of year again! We hope you'll consider making a gift before our fundraising deadline on Saturday, 12/31/2022 at midnight. Help us maintain our safe space and provide a warm, comfortable, home-away-from home for all of our students! Gifts can be made online, and checks can be made out to Tulane Hillel at 912 Broadway St, New Orleans, LA 70118. Thank you!

Save the Date: Jewish Heritage Night

Mark your calendars for Tuesday, 02/07/2023! We invite you to join us at our 2nd annual Jewish Heritage Night at the Avron B. Fogelman Arena in Devlin Fieldhouse, in partnership with Tulane Men's Basketball, as the Green Wave takes on Cincinnati. Enjoy Jewish trivia, music, and t-shirts for the first 500 attendees. Tickets can be purchased here.

Urban Adamah: Applications Due Today

Tulane Hillel's Urban Adamah application closes at midnight tonight, Thursday 12/15/2022! This subsidized Winter Break Immersion Trip offers students the opportunity to get their hands in the soil at a Jewish urban farm in Berkeley, CA. Send the application on to your student and reach out to Julia with questions. The application can be found here.

Tulane Jewish Leaders Banquet

Recently, Tulane Hillel hosted a banquet for our newest cohort of Tulane Jewish Leaders (TJL) at the Mintz Center. Students ate a delicious meal catered by Rimon, met other cohort members, and learned how to brainstorm and plan events in coordination with their staff mentors and friends! We're excited to see how they make a difference in our community during their time on campus - and beyond. Check out the TJL Banquet photos here.

Food Drive + Strong City Tulane

Tulane Hillel joined with Strong City Tulane to pack hundreds of meal baskets for those in need in the local Greater New Orleans area. This was our 2nd annual partnership with Strong City to organize volunteers, food donations, packaging, and delivery ahead of Thanksgiving! Check out more photos from the successful program here.

Shop for Good Art Market

Hundreds of students came out to support their fellow Tulanians and local creative entrepreneurs during our most recent Shop for Good Art Market. Shoppers came away with beautiful presents for themselves and others this holiday season, and artists donated up to 30% of their individual proceeds to a local nonprofit organization of their choice. Check out Art Market photos here.
