My Opinion: Hillelphobia

By Leonard Saxe

Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), Summer 2005

The author argues that the majority of Reform Jews are seldom at Hillel nor involved in Jewish activities on campus because they fear that they will not measure up as Jews. The author urges us to educate our children to be competent Jews by making sure that they have a better understanding of traditional ritual practices before they go to college. They will then have the skills to participate fully, and with confidence, in the life of the community.
