B'nai B'rith Magazine, 1924-1925

By Solomon Landman, Alexander Hecht

B'nai B'rith, Phillip Lax Archive, 1924

Two articles in the B'nai B'rith magazine highlight the spread of the first Hillel (at the University of Illinois) to its second campus (the University of Wisconsin). The first article delivers a brief account of Hillel's attempt to provide Jews the opportunities offered to Christian students on campus by establishing a place for study, prayer, and socialization among Jews. The second article details the foundation and workings of the Hillel at the University of Wisconsin, noting the new presence of Jewish studies courses, improved attendance at religious services, and enjoyable social events. That Hillel is conducted by students for students is an optimistic sign for the Jewish future, which lies in the hands of Jews who must find during their college years an appreciation for Jewish religion, culture, education, and social solidarity.
