Hi everybody:)

Hello!

The University of Washington Hillel organization finally has a blog! Now you can see updates and new information about events, shabbat dinners, and Jewish Holidays on here! We also have our currently made facebook for all UW undergrads, and of course the UW Hillel website, where a calendar of the month’s happenings and  interesting information can be found.

This blog will try to capture the events at Hillel, with descriptions and hopefully pictures too. I am going to try and update it once a week!

I hope it will become a useful place where everyone can get a taste of Hillel and come join the fun!
