On Friday, Oct. 23 KU Hillel hosted its 14th annual Rock Chalk Shabbat. Hundreds of students, parents, alumni, faculty, and community members joined together for an engaging and meaningful Shabbat experience. The event recognized the importance and prevalence of Jewish life on KU’s campus. Under the guidance of KU Hillel Program Director, Melissa Kingston, more than 150 student leaders worked together to organize Rock Chalk Shabbat and to make the event possible.
Senior Stacy Bernstein and Development Intern for KU Hillel, primarily helped with fundraising for the event and overall tasks throughout the week that were donor related. “Rock Chalk Shabbat was incredibly successful this year. It is one of my favorite events Hillel puts on each year,” she said. “It was also special to see many familiar faces from St. Louis, where I’m from, because it shows how many different places KU Hillel actually reaches to.”
