Hillel's Future from the Perspective of the Hillel Director

By Richard N. Levy

Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life, 1974

The author argues that a crisis in American society has affected the university's Jewish community, and urges that Hillel respond by contributing to the reconstruction of American culture and morality itself. The author suggests that Hillel do this for Jewish students and faculty by teaching creatively, integrating the philosophy of the classroom with the moral practices of life, and helping students and faculty break down the anonymity of the campus into smaller, human, non-competitive communities. Further, the author argues that to strengthen Hillel's foundations, Hillel must also strengthen its directors.
