RPI-Sage Hillel

Anouncements

Accepted Student's Day

Join us in welcoming accepted students into the RPI Jewish community with three events we have planned on Friday, April 8th. Accepted students and their families are welcome to come check out Hillel, and ask current students about RPI! Hillel members are from a variety of majors and participate in many different clubs, as well as Greek Life, and we will be happy to answer your questions! We're also happy to answer any questions that you or your parents have about Jewish life at RPI.

We will be having services at 5:45pm in Union 3514, and a dinner at 6:30pm in Union room 3606. You are welcome to join us for both, but if you would feel more comfortable just attending dinner and not services, that is totally fine.

We will be serving a baked lemon, herb, and parmesean crusted salmon with: garlic and parmesean roasted broccoli and cauliflower; roasted garlic, zucchini, and yellow squash; and onion and mushroom rice as our side dishes.

Accepted Students Bagel Brunch

Come join Hillel for a relaxing brunch on Saturday, April 9th! Accepted students and their families are welcome to come check out Hillel, and ask current students about RPI, and eat bagels and lox with us. Hillel members are from a variety of majors and participate in many different clubs, as well as Greek Life, and we will be happy to answer your questions! We're also happy to answer any questions that you or your parents have about Jewish life at RPI. The brunch will be held from 11:00am-2:00pm in Union 3606.

Hillel French Toast Fundraiser

Hillel will be hosting a fundraiser for student activities outside of Sage Dining Hall on Tuesday, April 12th from 10:00am-2:00pm. We will be selling challah french toast to all those who want some, so come on down and say hi and talk with some club members!

Girls' Night Nisan

We'll be gathering to celebrate the beginning of the Jewish month of Nisan on Wednesday, April 13th! Because this is the month that Passover is in, we'll be eating chocolate covered matzah, jelly fruit slices, and macaroons!

We'll also be doing glass painting! Specifically, we'll each take a mason jar or wine glass and create a Miriam's Cup (to be filled with water in a counterpoint to Elijah's Cup at the Passover seder, in an effort to make Judaism less patriarchal). Miriam was Moses' badass sister, and we'll be doing a bit of Torah study about her as well.

Anyone who identifies as a woman or as feminine-of-center is welcome to join us from 8:30pm-10:00pm in Union's Game Room.

Passover 5776 (2016)

Passover is right around the corner! Passover lasts from April 22-30 in the Gregorian calendar or 15-22 Nissan in the Hebrew calendar. As such we will be hosting two Passover seders on Friday, April 22nd and Saturday, April 23rd in Union 3202. Both start at 7:00pm, so feel free to come on by!

Hillel Under the Sea...

Come take an adventure under the sea at our annual Hillel Semi-Formal! It is going to be held on Saturday, April 30 at 9:30pm in the Interfaith Center at UAlbany. You will be able to buy tickets at the SA office, where bus and movie tickets are sold. They will cost: $5 per person. We will also sell tickets at the door. They will cost: $6 per person. It is going to be a lot of fun and there is going to be a photo booth so you can capture all the fun. If you have any questions feel free to ask any board member. We can't wait to sea~ you there!!
