Jewish and Muslim Students Dialogue at Hillel

The idea to bring Avi Shabbat to our campus this year was inspired by the success of last year’s event. Hearing from the students about the great experience they had made me want to make this event an annual one.

For those who don’t know, the Avi Schaefer Fund was established in memory of Avi who tragically died in a car accident.
