Last week during Passover, I visited a few different campuses to hang with students during lunchtime to enjoy some matzah with them.  On Monday, I went to California State University, Long Beach to join up with Beach Hillel for their matzah gathering; on Tuesday, I went to Chapman University to join up with their Hillel; and, on Thursday, I went to University of California, Irvine to join up with their Hillel.  It was a nice opportunity to get various students together and to schmooze with them over some matzah, while celebrating Passover.

For the second time this semester, I had the pleasure of speaking with students at California State University – Fullerton about an upcoming holiday.  Yesterday, in collaboration with the Hillel of Orange County, I spoke with students about Yom Kippur.

Having previously spoken with them two weeks previously about Rosh HaShanah, we met up in the Titan Student Union midday to discuss various practices that we Jewish people do concerning the holiday that begins tonight and continues through tomorrow night.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to speak with students at California State University, Fullerton about the upcoming holiday of Rosh HaShanah.  In collaboration with Orange County Hillel, I spoke during their weekly “Throw Bagel Thursday” event in the Titan Student Union, discussing aspects about the holiday, which will be coming up next week.  I was glad that these students were able to get some mental preparation for The Jewish New Year.
