Hillel and Red Mill Village: a special intergenerational bond.


Wheaton College Hillel has established a wonderful relationship with Jewish residents at Red Mill Village (RMV) which is a 55+ community nearby. Jewish residents of RMV initially made contact by inviting Wheaton Hillel to a performance of "Never Ever Ever." Then, Wheaton Hillel invited their new friends to campus for a "Meet and Greet" coffee. It was so successful and enjoyable that RMV and the eBoard got together to plan ongoing programs. RMV opened their doors to the students in hosting them for Passover for those who wanted to go off campus. The next event was a Birthright themed Shabbat. The students shared their Birthright experiences and RMV will share their Israeli experiences. The Shabbat included an Israeli themed dinner with candle lighting.
