HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 26, 2013 – High Point University students celebrated Jewish traditions with two Hanukkah dinners and presentations of the story of Hanukkah on Nov. 25.

This year, Hanukkah begins at sundown on Nov. 27. This is the first time since 1888 Hanukkah and Thanksgiving have fallen on the same day, and it won’t happen again for nearly 80,000 years. To honor the holiday and Jewish traditions, HPU’s Hillel chapter invited the entire HPU community to attend.

“The night is all about education,” said Taylor Adwar, a member of the HPU Hillel chapter. “If people walk out with a little more information about the Jewish faith than they had when they walked in, it was a successful night.”

“We felt it was important to host this dinner to help us reach out to the students and make ourselves known,” said Craig Schneid, HPU Hillel President.
Hillel’s purpose is to promote Jewish life on campus through religious and cultural events.
