Converting Jews to Judaism: Hillel Units Spread to 30 Colleges as A. L. Sachar, Their Director, Publishes "Sufferance is the Badge," His Opus

By Edward E. Grusd

The National Jewish Monthly, November 1939

The year 1939 marks Hillel national director Abram Sachar's new resolve to grow from 12 to 30 campuses, an expansion that will be only the beginning of Hillel's spread to all of major American colleges and universities. This growth will be conducted under a model of B'nai B'rith Hillel "extension units," which will be directed by full-time or part-time professionals and funded by local communities. Schools like the University of Chicago have local supervision under the advisement of a regional director, while communities such as Charlottesville, Virginia will host a rabbi who will serve both the local synagogue and the Hillel. These measures, though less impressive than full-fledged Hillel Foundations, will enrich Jewish religious and cultural life on campuses throughout the country.
