Falafel on the Hill is one of the many ways that KU Hillel does Israel outreach. Sam Agranoff, a senior from St. Paul, Minnesota, is in charge of Israeli engagement this year as her internship role at KU Hillel. After noting the success of Falafel on the Hill in the past and this year, Agranoff said several Israel-related events are planned throughout the semester.
“We are looking forward to bringing in certain guests or maybe even having notable speakers,” Agranoff said. “We want to make it less of talking about the conflict in Israel and instead focus on the fascinating aspects that make Israel so great.”
In addition to programs on campus, KU Hillel recently opened registration for its winter the Birthright Israel trip, which will take place in early January. Students will have the opportunity to travel with KU Hillel as they explore many different regions of Israel.
“Birthright is a really cool experience that made me want to get more involved in Israel engagement,” Agranoff said. “Though I didn’t go with KU, the KU Hillel trip will be a good experience for those wanting to learn more and even do more when they come back to KU next semester.”
