I’ve been back at Drew since Tuesday. I arrived early to help our school newspaper, The Acorn, cover the days of freshmen orientation. In my spare time, I’ve been discovering a complex debate in my head.
As anyone who knows me, or any avid reader of this blog will know, I haven’t had the best relationship, or the most honest relationship, with Drew University’s Hillel. We’re a small Hillel, advised by a wonderful, if stretched-thin professor, and last year we were not at our best. Behind their backs I voiced a loud dislike for Hillel; it did not meet my high, if unrealistic, Jewish communal standards.
