PARENTS & FAMILIES
Our GW Hillel family expands well beyond GW’s campus limits. We’re grateful for a robust community that includes alumni, community members, faculty, staff and – of course – our own students’ families. We love when students share their family traditions with us as they start to develop their own Jewish traditions throughout their college years. We’re grateful for your support, feedback and involvement – we couldn’t create our incredible Hillel community without you.
With a brand new building, comes many mouths to feed! In an effort to establish our new home as a warm & welcoming space for all, parents and friends can ensure that our fridge is always stocked full of food and drinks. With a gift of $1200, you can be a sponsor to fill our fridge for a whole month!
Simply click this link & enter 'fill the fridge' in the comments section.
GW Hillel's Family Circle plays an integral role in supporting our students as they 'find their people' and take ownership over their Jewish stories.
All families that donate a minimum of $1,800 or more each school year will be invited to 4 gatherings per year (a hybrid of online and in-person opportunities) to give you a front-row seat to GW Hillel's vision and approach. Gatherings will bring diverse voices together from student life, the administration, faculty, and more to give your family a stronger sense of GW campus life and Jewish community. Family Circle members are also invited to act as ambassadors to new families engaging with our community and if your gift is given through GW, you will be recognized as part of the university's Family Leadership Circle.
Learn more by emailing Executive Director Adena Kirstein or Board Member Lisa Leibow.
