Every week Hillel at ASU hosts a Shabbat experience, complete with services and a free meal, for all students. We create opportunities for those in attendance to connect with their Hillel community and different groups across campus through collaborative efforts led by our student leaders. Earlier this month we partnered with Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi) and Alpha Epsilon Phi (AEPhi), the Jewish fraternity and sorority on campus, to host Shabbat in the Hillel parking lot. They both worked with our staff to offer a unique ‘camp-style’ service for those in attendance. Everyone then came together for an Italian-inspired dinner catered by Hillel at ASU alum Chef Amber Sampson. We were thrilled to welcome both Greek chapters, especially the over 20 students who joined us for the first time at Hillel.
“Hillel helped establish AEPhi at ASU and the partnership between the two is still strong today. It was so fun for AEPhi to host Shabbat with ASU Hillel! Most of our chapter members were able to attend which provided a great reminder of how impactful the relationship between AEPhi and Hillel can be. The sisters of AEPhi know that if they ever need anything, from chapter development to personal development, the Hillel staff and community are always there for us. I have no doubt that the important relationship between Hillel and AEPhi will continue to grow and flourish for years to come.” - Bella Schneider ‘23
“AEPi had a great time cosponsoring Shabbat with Hillel. Having the opportunity to gather our brothers for a Shabbat experience with other members of the ASU Jewish community in a COVID safe way was amazing. Hillel has always been supportive of our brotherhood, helping us grow and strengthen our organization, and we’re always excited for the opportunity to continue partnering with Hillel to create social and educational programs. I am grateful to be a member of AEPi and that Hillel is invested in us as an organization and as individuals.” -Ian Lockwood ‘22
