‫יְ ִדיד ּות‬

You can see it on every page, in every image in this Annual Report – and, truly, your support helps make it happen. Amid much important talk of Jewish demographics and Jewish continuity, one thing is certain – and it is abundantly clear in Harvard Hillel. No factor is more influential in the emergence and expression of identity than the friendships one forges at the formative stage of young adulthood. In our own Rosovsky Hall, throughout the Harvard campus, and in Israel, our students share Jewish heritage, ideas, spirit, and culture with one another, and with Harvard peers of all backgrounds and faiths. Creating a phenomenon in which Jewish students are not mere passengers or attendees in programs, but are actual authors and shapers of a Jewish community they share proudly with friends, is essential to a vital Jewish future. Thanks to you, our 2015–’16 academic year laid strong groundwork for important strides, about which you will hear more in this new year. From a complete redesign of the entrylevel floor of our building – necessary to accommodate thriving student life at Harvard Hillel – to Fellows programs ensuring that new freshmen, and each House in Harvard College’s residential system, are well engaged by peers in Jewish community – your support, and the Jewish life you help to foster at Harvard, justify investment in our future. This year will see the fourth Harvard College Israel Trek – our own Israeli students sharing their country, our homeland, with their Harvard peers. And this year we will launch a new program at the conclusion of our winter Birthright trip, modeled on the Trek. In our work of increasing understanding and amity regarding Israel at Harvard, friendship proves vital again. Harvard Hillel enables students to encounter Israel as they connect with Israelis in friendship, and with one another. We hope you will be inspired by the friendship you see in these pages. All of us here at Harvard are touched, energized, and inspired by it every day – and, in renewing your support of Harvard Hillel, you play an essential part in this wide circle of friends! Yours in Friendship —

President, Undergraduate Steering Committee


In our own Rosovsky Hall, throughout the Harvard campus, and in Israel, Harvard Hillel enables and inspires Jewish students to express and to explore Jewish identity and heritage and to share Jewish tradition and thought with one another and with their Harvard peers of all backgrounds and faiths. Together, and with your support and inspiration, we create a multi-faceted community, ensuring that Jewish values, hospitality and community are integral in the Harvard landscape.

Harvard Hillel, I realized that this community would be indispensable during my time in the College. It’s clear that Harvard Hillel is especially unique: enthusiastically pluralistic, respectful and welcoming of everyone who comes in the front doors, supportive and encouraging of each individual’s journey.” COREY GOLD ’19

From the very first moments of Opening Days, when our team of returning students welcomes Harvard’s new incoming class, and all the way through senior thesiswriting and exploration of career paths beyond Harvard, our Jewish community provides a nexus in which students encounter and discuss the issues and questions of our time in an atmosphere that values and highlights meaning and togetherness, as well as knowledge.

RABBI BEN-ZION GOLD

PROFESSOR HILARY PUTNAM

SAMUEL MING-SUM FISHER ‘16

DIRECTOR OF HARVARD HILLEL from 1958 to 1990, founder of the Worship & Study Minyan, lifelong son of Torah and sweet singer of Israel’s melodies—Rabbi Gold’s mission was nothing less than “returning the Torah to the Jewish people.” He did exactly that, touching countless lives, moving Jewish life at Harvard “from the periphery to the center,” goading and inspiring administrators, faculty, and students alike, always with love.

IN SEARCH OF A COMMUNITY for his son’s Bar Mitzvah, Hilary discovered Rabbi Ben-Zion Gold and Harvard Hillel’s Worship & Study community, and eventually became Bar Mitzvah here himself, making Jewish tradition an important part of his pioneering work in philosophy and of his life at Harvard. Hilary remained a steadfast participant in Shabbat at Harvard Hillel until his very last days, and we are blessed that his dear partner in life and thought, Ruth Anna, remains an active and cherished member of our Worship & Study Minyan.

STUDENT PRESIDENT OF HARVARD HILLEL’S Undergraduate Steering Committee, inimitable, big-spirited mensch, musician, brilliant student, and devoted friend­—Sammy’s life and leadership continue touching and shaping this community. Sam’s sudden passing, just after finishing a charity triathlon, is an unfathomable loss. We grieve with Sam’s siblings and parents, and are so blessed that Sam’s brother Jonathan (Harvard Medical School) and Jonathan’s fiancée Natalie Maschian (Harvard Department of Physics) are part of our graduate student community.
