Building Community


Empowering & Developing Leaders Leadership in Action Over 100 students are engaged with Hillel through internships and leadership positions. From students who work as graphic design interns to Hotel Restaurant and Institutional Management students who help make Shabbat dinner each week, all of our leaders play an important role. The leaders of our 6 Jewish student groups plan programs to connect with students interested in anything from Israel advocacy, community service, holiday programming and more. Leadership Development The Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) program provides our community of student leaders with opportunities to grow through a monthly speaker series and annual leadership retreat. The speaker series brings in talented professionals who speak to students on a range of leadership topics centered around Jewish values. Our students benefit from engaging in thoughtful discussion and personal reflection on topics such as constructive conflict and the act of hachnasat orachim, or welcoming others. Jewish Leaders of Tomorrow Each year, we have graduates who are inspired by their time at UD Hillel and decide to pursue careers in Jewish nonprofit work. Our graduates are making a difference in organizations such as BBYO, Hillel, Moishe House and Jewish Federations across the country. Many UD Hillel alumni also demonstrate their commitment to the Jewish future by joining the board of a synagogue or a local or national Jewish organization.


Hillel is building the Jewish future, one student at a time.


Connecting students on the basis of their interests, passions and beliefs.


Building community Freshmen Fest 2016: Connecting Friends for Life Full article appeared in the Jewish Voice They say you meet your best friends in college, but they fail to mention that it’s because of Freshmen Fest – a program run by UD Hillel and Chabad for 14 years. Two days before move-in, Jewish freshmen are given the option to move into their dorms (minus the crowds) and kick start their college experience. The program began once students moved into their dorms and said goodbye to their families. While the students met their groups and started to break the ice, over 175 parents and families were hosted at Hillel for a reception. Students then headed to Chabad for a barbeque, bonding with future classmates, meeting friendly staff, and listening to the Orthobox beatbox , featured on America’s Got Talent. With excitement in the air, students looked to their group leaders to find out what college is really like in a College 101 panel. Questions were asked about the best places to eat on campus, where to get affordable textbooks and how to connect to UD wifi. The night ended with a bonfire and s’mores at Hillel before the students headed back to their dorms for their first night in their new homes. Friday morning students gathered for a bagel breakfast at Hillel. Amidst the cream cheese and muffins, students learned about what Jewish life at UD has to offer including internships, opportunities to travel and more. The rest of the day included an outdoor field day (featuring pie-a-leader, a large bouncy house and friendly competition), a student organization fair (showcasing just some of the other organizations on campus like the Running club and UDance) and campus tours by college major. Before we knew it, Shabbat was coming and Freshmen Fest 2016 was coming to a close. Students changed into their bests and came together for a beautiful observance of Shabbat led by our staff and leaders. Freshman Ilana Weiss enjoyed her Shabbat experience with 200+ new friends. “It showed me that Hillel is another family that I have at UD. I was able to bond with Jewish students going through the same experience I was while getting to explore my Jewish values at the same time,” she said. Freshmen Fest came to a close and students were eager to start classes, continue exploring campus and finish decorating their rooms. Wherever the next four years will take them, we hope they’ll remember the memories they created at Freshmen Fest and continue the relationships they built.

Shabbat Across Campus UD Hillel organized its second Shabbat Across Campus. Students hosted their own Shabbat dinner in their dorms, apartments or houses. 22 students opened their table to 153 guests who joined them for an intimate and memorable Shabbat experience. “I had a mix of both my Jewish and non-Jewish friends at my Shabbat because I wanted them to know more about my Jewish faith. They really enjoyed the experience and left with an understanding of the Jewish values of community, family and gratitude. Plus, they said that challah is the best bread they’ve ever tasted.” -Amy Elfond, 2018


Celebrating Jewish Holidays First Friday Series Written by Alyssa Hartstein ‘17 Shabbat dinner at Hillel has been something I’ve looked forward to attending at the end of the week for the better part of the last four years. Being a senior, I thought I’d seen all the different cuisines that a Shabbat dinner could offer, from around the world themes (my favorite being Israeli themed) to breakfast for dinner. I was wrong. First Friday proved dinner could go to greater lengths. This finger-food filled event has innovated a Jewish tradition that has been around for centuries, while still maintaining the meaning of Shabbat. The atmosphere of First Friday was probably one of the most memorable parts: it was held in the same room as every Shabbat dinner, but a change in lighting and decoration in a familiar room went a long way. The lights were dimmed and draped across the room. Attendees were greeted by high round standing tables (think: Bar Mitzvah cocktail hour), new and old friends and a schmoozefriendly environment. Lastly, and most importantly, the hors d’ouerves served were delicious thanks to Hillel chef Cailah. Among the appetizer-style finger foods were mini knishes, falafel, pizza pockets, and spinach pies — truly something for everyone. The other part of First Friday that I really enjoyed was the early timing. Dinner started before services, which made it possible to celebrate Shabbat and then enjoy the rest of Friday night. I’m looking forward to seeing how First Friday will evolve over the rest of the semester.

Pink Shabbat Written by Olivia Cassandro ‘​17 October was National Breast Cancer Awareness month. Many women are affected by this terrible disease and this month aims to help prevent, educate and support many. Jewish organizations play a particularly important role in participating during this month, especially because of Ashkenazi women’s higher susceptibility to breast cancer. That’s why the University of Delaware Hillel teams up with UD’s Alpha Epsilon Phi (AEPhi) chapter annually to host Pink Shabbat. The two organizations hope to bring awareness to Sharsheret, one of the philanthropic organizations supported nationally by AEPhi. The founder of Sharsheret, Rochelle Shoretz, is a breast cancer survivor, member of Alpha Epsilon Phi sorority, and former law clerk to Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Since it’s inception fifteen years ago, Sharsheret has responded to over 45,000 inquiries, providing constant, remarkable support to young women battling breast cancer and their families. Shoretz believes in the importance of young women meeting and talking with survivors. Among the crowd at UD Hillel’s Pink Shabbat on November 4th stood Stephanie Kaplan, who shared her story about the preventative measures she underwent after finding out she was at greater risk for breast cancer. According to Michelle Wasserman, Vice President of Philanthropy for UD’s AEPhi chapter, “Pink Shabbat is a special event each year for me because I get to share our chapter’s philanthropy and cause with the University of Delaware Jewish community”. Pink Shabbat is hosted in conjunction with Alpha Epsilon Phi’s Pink Week, which raises money for Sharsheret through profit-shares and an on-campus fashion show called Ribbons on the Runway. AEPhi sisters look forward to the event every year not just for the great food and company, but as a way to fully understand the meaning of their philanthropy. Though UD Hillel hosts Shabbat dinners week after week, Pink Shabbat holds a special significance. Wasserman said, “Knowing more about Sharsheret is so important because breast cancer has and will affect so many people in my life and Sharsheret will always be an incredible resource.”

Bringing Judaism off the page and into life.


Embodying Jewish Values Senior Melds Passion for Philanthropy with Judaism Full article appeared in the Jewish Voice University of Delaware senior Brooke Wershaw eagerly awaits her future in the nonprofit field. Seeing her sister survive childhood cancer, Brooke saw firsthand the impact nonprofits and healthcare organizations have on those they serve. Wershaw discovered her passion for fundraising and nonprofit work through UDance- UD’s largest student-run philanthropy that raises funds and awareness for childhood cancer. Only until recently did Wershaw’s passion for philanthropy meld with her Jewish identity. As Hillel’s development intern, she gained a greater understanding of what Hillel provides for students beyond holiday services and meals. Brooke delivered soup to students who were feeling sick for UD Hillel’s Matzah Ball Soup Hotline service and considered this experience to be one of the most rewarding parts of her internship. “Being able to serve as a helping hand when parents aren’t there to help their sick child helped me learn how vital Hillel is to a Jewish college student and their family,” said Wershaw. As part of her internship Brooke also grew UD Hillel’s Giving Tuesday campaign, which raised more than $16,000 to support Shabbat dinners this year. She inspired other students to join her in making phone calls by sharing with them how special Shabbat at UD Hillel is. Wershaw even filmed a fun video where she stopped students walking around campus to ask them to strike a match, a great opportunity to then tell them about the Light Up Hillel for Giving Tuesday Shabbat campaign. Her senior year internship with Hillel not only helped her gain practical job skills but also reaffirmed her passion for nonprofit work and for Judaism. Wershaw is excited to graduate in the spring in the hopes that she will find a job doing what she loves. No matter where she will be employed next year, Brooke says she “…looks forward to advancing the Jewish value of tikkun olam¸ or ‘repairing the world’ into [her] post-college career and also into [her] everyday life”.

Good Deeds Day “​ ​As President of Project Change I deeply enjoyed planning and running Good Deeds Day with my board. Have an entirely student run event shows the world what an important impact college students can have on their community. Doing hands on service was an amazing way to engage other college students in helping their community. I am incredibly grateful to my amazing board for helping to make a positive change in the world.“ -Jules Ilian ‘18


Strengthening Students’ Connections to Israel Israel Leadership Series The Israel Leadership Series ​provides our student leaders ​with opportunities to​learn together. Discussions center around Israel politics and current events and trainings teach students how to combat BDS by building relationships with groups and organizations on and off campus. As part of the series, students s​ at down with Former Governor of Delaware Jack Markell ​​to talk about relationship​​building​,​as well as how to work with their elected officials. Hillel also had the privilege of hosting Geoffrey Melada, the communications director for Hillel International,​who taught students how to tell their own personal Israel story.

IFest IFest (Israel Fest) was held on November 5th and was hosted by Hillel Student Life as part of the University’s Trabant Now series, offering alternative late-night weekend programming for students. This Israel festival showed the culture of Israel to attendees and allowed them to understand that there is more to the land than the conflict. Thanks to the support from StandWithUs, Hillel International, Hasbara, and ZOA, the event offered students the opportunity to experience Israel on campus. There was a Krav Maga demonstration, make your own hummus bar, Israeli snacks, a photobooth with various food tasting, and more. 150 people-students and community members-came to the event and danced the night away with a DJ who turned the Trabant Student Center into an Israeli night club. Students were able to walk away with not only fun giveaways but also knowledge of how to go to Israel, how to go back to Israel, and non-Jewish trips to Israel.

Building Interfaith Cooperation UD Hillel Receives Campus Partnership Award from Hillel International

At its annual Global Assembly in Orlando, Hillel International presented the University of Delaware Hillel with the People’s Choice Campus Partnership Award. UD Hillel was honored for extending that mission by positively impacting the entire student body through interfaith cooperation and crosscampus partnerships. “We are excited to be recognized by Hillel International and the entire Hillel movement as an indispensable campus partner,” said UD Hillel Executive Director Donna Schwartz. “By working in collaboration with the University we build bridges that help connect Jewish students to amazing opportunities that benefit them personally and professionally and strengthen their Jewish identities”.


UD Hillel has been a catalyst for diversity and tolerance, specifically through its Serving Better Together program, which has won UD’s “Bright Initiative” award. The program brings together students from across religious and nonreligious backgrounds during the University’s Winter Session to engage in relationship-building through service to those in need. Serving Better Together participant Leah Blachman ‘18 said that she “...loved the opportunity to meet students from all religions” throughout the month-long program. She added, “Sometimes I forget that there are students of different religions on campus who share a lot of the same values as my own Jewish values. It was comforting to see that we had more in common than we thought”. UD Hillel was also recognized for its partnership with the Admissions department. Since bringing kosher dining to the University of Delaware in fall 2015, UD Hillel’s efforts have shifted to working hand-in-hand with the Admissions department to attract prospective students to the University. “The Hillel staff are not just trying to “sell” families on the experience,” said Doug Zander, UD Director of Admissions. “They are providing testimony to the deep and caring relationships they have with our students, helping them grow as scholars, as people, and as engaged citizens of the world.”

Students of diverse religious identities working together towards a common good.


Our Impact “Hillel has helped me feel at home at UD. It’s an inviting atmosphere where everyone is welcome.” -Kyle Basarab ‘19

“Hillel gives us the opportunity to be ourselves, to feel accepted, and is a place from which the most amazing relationships can begin.” -Heather Brody ‘17

“Growing up with few Jewish friends, Hillel has provided me with a sense of belonging that I previously had never experienced. I am grateful for the community that Hillel has offered me throughout my time at UD, and I know the connections and friendships that I made will carry on beyond graduation.” -Sarah Ehrenberg ‘17

“Hillel has provided me with a home away from home, ignited a fire in me which burns with passion for Jewish life and Israel education, and instilled in me the confidence required to be a leader and work for what I believe in.” -Nikki Golomb ‘17

“Experiences that I have had through Hillel have undoubtedly shaped me as an individual, leader, and future Jewish professional.” -Alyssa Hartstein ‘17

“As I got closer to graduating, Hillel introduced me to the ways I can continue to be involved in the Jewish community” -Rob Grossman ‘17

Stuart and Suzanne Grant Comprehensive Excellence Society Comprehenshive Excellence is a bold experiment to see if a fully-funded Hillel, with the technical assistance of Hillel International, can set a new bar for what a top performing Hillel looks like. If successful, Comprehensive Excellence will become the model for raising capital and deploying field expertise needed to take Hillel to the next level. Last year, the University of Delaware Hillel became the 4th campus to pilot this program. Money raised by the society ensures that our Hillel is operating at the highest level of excellence. Hillel’s vision is a world where every student is inspired to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning and Israel.

Celebrating UD Alum & Jewish Community Leader Yetta Chaiken Written by Julia Brody ‘17 & Isabelle Perlman ‘17 Hillel celebrated Yetta Chaiken’s commitment to Jewish life at UD and her 95th birthday at their End of Year Celebration on May 15th. According to Yetta, one of her proudest moments was when she helped turn Hillel, which once was located above the 5&10 on Main Street, into what it is today: the Kristol Center for Jewish Life. Hillel’s board desperately needed funds to build the center. It was after Yetta ran into Dan Kristol, whose late father had recently passed, that she suggested he name the Hillel building in his memory. Yetta and her late husband, Frank, were dedicated to supporting Jewish life at UD. Not only did they play a huge role in securing a home for Hillel, but they also endowed the Jewish Studies department at UD. Yetta’s impact on the UD campus is apparent when looking at the two buildings, the Kristol Center and the Frank and Yetta Chaiken Center of Jewish Studies on West Delaware Ave. These two lively buildings represent Yetta’s huge influence in building the Jewish community here on campus. Even though Yetta has done so much for the Jewish community, she remains humble and insists that maintaining these centers is not a one woman show, especially since she lives a very busy life, even at the age of 95. Donations given in honor of Yetta’s milestone went to starting the Chaiken Jewish Education Fund, a part of the Jewish Fund for the Future. UD Hillel is thrilled to welcome Yetta & Frank (z”l) Chaiken to the Stuart and Suzanne Grant Comprehensive Excellence Society.


Thank you to our Legacy donors for helping to ensure that UD Hillel will be a home away from home for many years to come.
