Falafel on the Hill is one of the many Israel programs supported by KU Hillel. The program is designed to offer students a sampling of traditional Israeli food while providing an opportunity to introduce many students on campus to Israel. The falafel table is always set up on Wescoe Beach, one the most highly trafficked quads on KU’s campus.
After 12 years of Falafel on the Hill programming, KU Hillel Israel Interns Abby Chargo and Samantha Agranoff decided to try something new. Café Hillel on Campus is a new iteration of the successful Falafel on the Hill program. Instead of serving falafel on campus, KU Hillel provides students with hot coffee, tea and cookies designed to look and feel like the popular coffee houses in Israel, Aroma Café and Cofix.
Overall, the Falafel on the Hill program is a terrific opportunity to celebrate Israel and to convey a positive message to the larger KU community. At KU we are very fortunate to be a part of such a warm and inclusive community. Often times, students who are not familiar with KU Hillel stop by the table to learn more about the organization and celebrate Israel.
