Last Friday we all gathered to celebrate the end of the academic year and the have our last Shabbat dinner of the semester. We remembered all the amazing things we did this year, and to say goodbye to all of our students, just before they go home for summer break.

We also had the privilege of saying goodbye to all our wonderful graduates, and with the support of their loved ones, to wish them success in the life after the degree, and in their independent way of life and Jewish identity.

Have an amazing summer for everyone and see you in the fall of 2019!!

"My Jewish brothers & sisters are particularly in my prayers today on the Holocaust Day. At our mass tonight I will be publicly praying for a definitive end to anti-semitism& for continues healing of the wounds of the past..." FrJames Searby

Today, on the Holocaust Commemoration Day, many of us were remembering and reflecting on the horrors of our past. Jewish people around the world dedicate this day to keep the memories, people, and stories alive, and advocate for a better future, following the "Never Again" lesson we all adopted.

However, the Holocaust can not only be our pain, and we can't fight for a better world, a more tolerant world, alone.

We are fortunate to have friends, on campus and beyond, who join our sorrow and share our message, such as GMU Catholic Campus Ministry (CCM) today.

We are proud to stand with our Christians, Muslims, and Buddhists brothers and sisters when they mourn on their loved ones, who died due to hate and intolerance.

Today, we joined Mason Muslim Affairs Council - MMAC in an interfaith vigil in the memory of the Sri Lanka attack victims. We listened to inspiring religious leaders and being represented by the wonderful Pr. Marc Gopin, as he spoke about building bridges and spread love when one face hate and violence.

It was a sad day for our Mason Jewish community, but also a day full of hope, of friendship and new partnerships.

Woman killed, 3 injured in shooting at California synagogue

As Shabbat and Pesach were coming to an end, a life was taken by an anti-Semitic attack at The Chabad synagogue in Poway, California. Tonight, Mason Hillel mourns with the Jewish community around the world. Terror and anti-Semitism have no limits, it can happen anywhere at any time, even on religious holy days. We stand strong with our Jewish community and we are committed to ending Anti-Semitism, on and off campus, and throughout all aspects of society. The Jewish community at Mason remains resilient and proud of our Jewish identity and values that guide us toward peace.

Hundreds killed in Sri Lanka bomb attacks - CNN Video

"...I will make a covenant of peace with them--it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; and I will establish them, and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary in the midst of them for ever..." (Ezekiel 37).
A place of worship should be a place of peace. No one should be a victim of a hate crime for choosing to practice their faith; not in Sri Lanka, New Zeland or Pittsburgh. We mourn the murder of hundreds of Christians at prayer in Sri Lanka and wish a refuah shleimah to those injured in this senseless act.

https://www.cnn.com/videos/world/2019/04/21/sri-lanka-bombings-easter-sunday-lon-orig-mkd.cnn

Hundreds of people have been killed or injured after a series of blasts hit luxury hotels and churches across Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday.

This past Sunday was a special day as students from George Mason University Hillel, Maryland Hillel, and GW Hillel joined forces to remove old carpet for a family with asthma. The mother was very grateful for the assistance to make her home healthier for her boys. The hard work by the students pulling up the carpet, removing sharp tacks, and carefully cleaning the dust and debris means the boys can breathe easier now.

A heartfelt thank you to the students. And thank you to all who supported this meaningful project.
