BLUE HENS FOR ISRAEL  

Blue Hens for Israel is for students who are interested in all aspects of Israeli culture. We draw students who would like to take an active pro-Israel stance on campus to spread awareness and gain student involvement in educating about all the wonderful things Israel has to offer. We have no religious or political affiliations, we just want to celebrate the great state of Israel and support her here at the University of Delaware.

GESHER

 We create various programs to celebrate the holidays and teach cultural traditions, which any student can appreciate. We strive to execute innovative events to attract new members and appeal to a wide population of students. 

 

Every semester we host a variety of unique social and cultural events that explore all aspects of Judaism. We love to be together, whether it be celebrating a holiday, cooking and eating, or at our weekly Shabbat services. We aim to form a dynamic, exciting, and friendly community.
