UCI Students Coming Back to Campus

Just beyond Yom Kippur services this weekend, college students begin returning to UCI and their undergraduate and graduate studies as the official Welcome Week (Sept. 20-24) festivities are about to begin.

After a quiet summer and final decision by the UCI upholding the suspension of the Muslim student Union, a quieter fall quarter should be enjoyed by students and community members.

Orange County Hillel has developed a week-long program for incoming and returning Jewish students to the UCI campus.

You can find a Hillel table at Aldrich Park on Monday of Welcome Week from 9a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Tuesday‘s event is an Open House evening affair from 7:30 p.m. to 10:00 which I am told also includes free food.

If you have a sweet tooth then Wednesday‘s Ice Cream Sundae Social may be for you.  A table will be set up on ring road from noon to 1:00 p.m.

You can return to the same table the next morning for free coffee and bagels starting Thursday at 8:00 a.m.  One caveat though, is a disclaimer to come early or supplies may run out if you are come too late.

To finish the week, Hillel is teaming with Chabad on campus for the first Shabbat dinner of the year on Friday.  Services are at 7:00 p.m. with dinner, I am told beginning at 7:30 p.m.

So, now you know.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy New Year, and an easy fast this weekend.
