“One of the things that got me involved in Allegheny College’s Hillel
is its small yet strong community.  If I was at a larger school, I don’t
know if I would have gotten involved in Hillel, but at Allegheny I feel
a responsibility and sense of dedication to maintaining and growing
our Jewish community on campus.  The amazing support of
Allegheny College students, faculty, staff, and administration
makes being part of Hillel a truly rewarding and enriching
experience.”        – Aviv Crowell Lang, ’15
