On April 26, KU Hillel hosted it’s first ever Mr. Hillel competition where six Jewish men participated in various activities that were ranked and voted on by student audience members. From stand-up comedy to trumpet and guitar performances to an original rap song written about Hillel and Judaism, the talent portion of the evening proved to be quite entertaining. “My favorite part of the evening was definitely watching all of the guys come out of their shells and show off their talents,” says sophomore Emily Ruben.
Along with the talent portion of the evening, contestants participated in a fashion show focusing on, “what one should wear to his in-laws for Shabbat” followed by a Question and Answer portion.
“We hope this program will continue on in future years. It was such a fun program and such an easy way to give back to an important cause,” concludes Edwards.
