An Essential Link

By Norman Shavin

Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life, 1974

This chapter contains a statement received from a Hillel alumnus reflecting upon his experience as a Hillel student. He stresses how Hillel was a vital influence and a powerful shaping link in his life; it provided him with opportunities to indulge his journalistic ambitions, offering him a forum to test ideas and interests in Jewish matters, making him re-think the who-and-what-and-where of himself, involving him in Zionist affairs, and urging him to say "yes" to his Jewishness.
