One Student's Journey from Western Philosophy to the Rabbinate

By Peter Ochs

Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life, 1973

The author, a Hillel alumnus and former philosophy student, reflects upon his experience as a Hillel student. He stresses how the Jewish presence at Yale and a Shabbat dinner with the Israel family triggered his return to Judaism and his eventual decision to become a Rabbi. He expresses his hope that Hillel will come to understand Western Jews, what they are, why they do what they do and how much they need to return to Judaism.
