With this in mind, Hillel, a Jewish organization, was formed for Houston area students, specifically for UH and Rice University. Since Hillel was a group that spanned two different schools, members had a unique opportunity to compare practices and habits. "Its neat how, in the same city, two schools can be like night and day!' said Michelle Spindel, a junior communications major. Hillel had a main building located downtown, for both chapters, while most of the UH activity took place in the A. D. Bruce Religion Center which, unfortunately, spent most of the year under repairs. Hillel sponsored many different events, most of which were free to the students. These events included luncheons twice a month, HOT Nights (Hillel Open Tuesday Nights), and the new Chillin' "We meet amazing people; it s cool to see how others do things differently." - Michelle Spindel Wit da Rabbi monthly meetings. They also held talent shows and other events to celebrate the holidays. The group also offered students many opportunities to travel and meet other Jewish students. They sent members to a national convention which included students from the US and Canada, as well as an annual retreat which involved all of the Texas chapters of Hillel. "Its a great way to make connections!' said Spindel. The group also hosted a retreat with Hillel students from Tulane University, during which they took the visitors to the rodeo. Tulane reciprocated, offering a tour of New Orleans later in the year. Hillel offered Jewish students a great deal of freedom to meet other people and expand their knowledge of the Jewish tradition. The students formed bonds on the trips and in the meetings which they felt would be likely to last for years. -Ashley Grubbs THE GANGS ALL HERE Students who went on the Birthright trip to Israel gathered for a photo at a scenic overlook. Half of the group was from UH, while half was from Rice. Photo courtesy of Hillel JUST CHILLIN' Students gathered for an evening of Chillin' Wit da Rabbi, which met once a month in the dorm lobbies. The Rabbi answered any questions the students may have had. Photo by Rich R. Risma PASSIONATE EXPERIENCE A student was overwhelmed on his first visit to the Western Wall, or the Wailing Wall, on the Birthright trip. The trip was an emotional one for many of the visitors.
