Tuesday, Aug. 23: My Jewish Journey 6:00-7:30 P.M. Hillel is not just another cookie cutter experience. Come experience the diversity and plurality of Jews here at UI in the first of many Jewish learning opportunities (you don't need to come to all of them, don't worry). Dinner will be provided.
Wednesday, Aug. 24: First Year Dinner and Scavenger Hunt 5:30 P.M., hunt at 7:00 P.M. Start at Hillel and maybe catch some Pokémon along the way (yeah, yeah, by now it's probably like Digimon or whatever). Winners get a prize!
