In our socially distanced world, students across Georgia are relying on Hillel for access to Jewish community and experiences during the High Holidays and throughout the year. Your generous support allows us to continue to offer connections and programs to meet Jewish students' interests while keeping them safe and healthy.
Dear Alumni of HillelUGA,
I hope this note finds you well, healthy and safe, for those of you that do not know me my name is Jeremy Lichtig and I am the new Campus Director at Hillel UGA. For years I have worked with the Hillel UGA community and I am so excited to step into this new role!
Let me be the first to welcome all graduates of HillelUGA to our Alumni portal. As a graduate, HillelUGA considers you family. We want to stay connected to encourage you and walk side-by-side with you on your journey.
This portal will be used to update you on everything going on with HillelUGA. My goal is to have a communication network among the alumni to spread good news and update you on all the things we are doing in Athens to continue to help students develop a Jewish identity and a connection to Israel.
We hope that you will take advantage of this portal and stay in touch with us, let us know if you arrive in Athens and can join us for Shabbat, know any students at UGA we can reach out to, or just help us spread the word on all that we do at HillelUGA.
We are asking for your testimonials, ideas, support, and community to strengthen and pave the way for others to learn about HillelUGA.
We are proud of our alumni and hope to connect with you soon. All the best!
We are excited to welcome your student to their Jewish home away from home! At Hillel we seek to create an open, inclusive Jewish environment for every student, and our staff will strive to ensure that everyone feels at home as a vital member of our Hillel family.
Parent contributions of any amount are vital for Hillel to engage, support, and inspire every Jewish student on campus. Your support helps us provide free Jewish programming, kosher Shabbat and holiday meals, leadership opportunities, and so much more!
