First Year Students at Hillel
First Year Students at Hillel (FYSH) is an innovative program that provides compelling and engaging entry-points to Jewish life for incoming freshman on the Claremont campuses. Our goal is to provide a strong foundation of Jewish-identified engagement opportunities right out of the gates, building a basis for continuity and growth, and participation in our Hillel community. For the 2012-2013 school year, FYSH has many great experiential, interactive, spiritual, social, educational, and identity-building programs planned. We have hosted the Welcome Barbeque, the Jewish Community Retreat, field trips to Yogurt Land, Lazer Tag and look forward to many more events! Our FYSH Council is comprised of seven first year students who are committed to planning Jewish programs for their peers. If you are interested in learning more about FYSH, please contact First Year Student chair Eli.
