Hillel Global Giving Week (HGGW)
Amid the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic over the past two years, we have stood in awe of the resilience of our students as they have overcome all obstacles. Thanks to your support, the Rosenblatt Family Hillel at WFU has been there helping Jewish students discover a welcoming and caring Jewish community.
From May 9-13, we will join 150 Hillels around the world in participating in the 3rd annual Hillel Global Giving Week. During that time, all gifts made to WFU Hillel will be matched dollar-for-dollar! If you have a WFU Hillel story to share, let Gail know.
