Dear Hillel of Silicon Valley supporters,
My name is Kylie Greenhut, I’m a junior at San Jose State University. My major in Hospitality Management, which means I have to be incredibly sociable and approachable. The Hillel of Silicon Valley provides to me an atmosphere of friendship and essence of home. I couldn’t imagine my college career without it, and frankly I don’t want to do such a thing. I have made so many life long friends from events that Hillel host for the college community. This is my home away from home. I’m from Los Angeles, so I’m not exactly close to my family. After finding my place at Hillel, I found myself wanting to go home less and stick around to help set up for Shabbat. The staff has been the most encouraging support system throughout my college experience. They were there for me when my grandmother passed away last year and encouraged me to become the President of the Jewish Student Union. I love being able to welcome new students into our Hillel family. Thank you so much for all your dearly appreciated donations. Because of your generous acts of kindness students will have a home to return to and support system that will always be in place.
Thank You, Kylie, SJSU
