Mason Hillel celebrates its 25th anniversary

Thank you for the Washington Jewish Week for capturing the beauty and excitement we all experienced last Sunday evening.

We are moved and honored to celebrate 25 years with hundreds of friends, alumni and community members, and looking forward to the next 25 years.

Thank you for everyone who made this event so magical.

The organization created the Scott Brown Jewish Life and Learning Fund to raise $25,000 to hire a third professional, who will focus on Jewish education, to Hillel’s staff.

Calling all Jewish Women! Rosh Chodesh, meaning "head of the month" in Hebrew, marks the beginning of a new lunar cycle. It's tradition for women to take off from work, relax, have a meal, and chat about the upcoming month; in this case, the Hebrew month of Heshvan! 🌚

As the one year commemoration of the Tree of Life shooting approaches this weekend, we want to remember those we have lost. Even though almost a year has passed, we have not forgotten. Please join Mason Hillel, Chabad at GMU and Alpha Epsilon Pi George Mason Thursday October 24 at 2:00 JC room G for a conversation about anti-semitism, fear, coping and how we come together as a community after each loss. This activity will be led by the founder and owner of “The Shuchart Foundation for Mental Health Awareness”, John Shuchart. We hope you can join us as we remember the past and work together to move forward.

In Hateful Screed, German Synagogue Attacker Sought Wide Audience

Our hearts are with the community of Halle, Germany and the affected families at this time. Yom Kippur should be a day of introspection and self-reflection, not a time to flee violence.

The gunman who fatally shot two people made clear that he chose his target intending to kill as many Jews as possible and that he hoped to impress extremists beyond Germany.
