Manhattanville College has an active Jewish Students Association on campus assisted by the Student Government Association and advised by Hillels of Westchester Program and Engagement Associate Ethan Behling. One of 30 clubs on campus, the JSA hosts programs such as Shabbat Dinners, movie nights, Holocaust Remembrance speakers, and Jewish Education Lunch and Learns. We are very grateful to Provost Gail Simmons who has assisted with this year's Chanukah candle lighting and celebration.
With staff outreach from Hillels of Westchester, students from Manhattanville College have been taking part in Taglit-Birthright Israel trips, Alternative Spring Break trips, film screenings, and multi-campus Shabbat dinners shared with Purchase College and Pace University. Manhattanville College JSA students have also joined us for our annual Klezmanukah party and Simchat Torah trips to local synagogues.
Hillels of Westchester supports the JSA efforts to expand relevant Jewish programming and we allocate funding to supplement Jewish student life on campus with resources, and outreach.
