Holiday programming is a large part of Jewish student life. To that end we aim to host a program before or on every Jewish holiday. We are creating ways for the students to give back to the community through a variety of volunteer programs. One program we hosted last year was titled “Loaves of Love” where we get together in a fun environment and bake traditional Jewish Challah bread and then the students are able to bring home half of their loaves and the rest we donate to a women’s shelter and a youth shelter here in Kingston.
Our mandate is to enhance Jewish student life here at Queen’s, through programming and support. Programming will centre on education, volunteering and creating an atmosphere of acceptance and respect.
