Jewish Community Where You Are
This semester we are thrilled to announce Kehillah! This is UVM Hillel's platform to build niche communities all around campus and virtually. Want to meet other Jewish UVM students with similar interests or peers that have the same the major as you? Kehillah is for you! This is a choose and create your own community.
Kehillah means community in hebrew.
Paint and Sip
Join us for a beginner's-friendly painting lesson with Israeli artist, Penina Shtauber. She will be Zooming from Israel and teaching us step-by-step how to use easy techniques to create a beautiful scene of the old city of Jerusalem - no previous painting experience/artistic abilities required!
This event will take place on Sunday, November 15th at 3:00 PM at UVM Hillel (space limited due to social distancing restrictions - sign up ASAP to reserve your space!). There is also a remote option, as the event will be on Zoom as well - you can pick up supplies here, and we can also Venmo you if you are off campus.
There will also be plenty of hot chocolate, a collection of teas and coffees, Israeli snacks, and other goodies.
Below, find links to three of our local Burlington synagogues: Temple Sinai, Ohavi Zedek, and Ruach Hamaqon. You will also find the sign up sheet required to attend one of these temple's services.
