Israel Comes to RCC

By Rockland Jewish Reporter

The campus quad at Rockland Community College was transformed into its own version of Israel on April 14 when the Center for Jewish Life/ Hillel presented the college's first Israel fair. Hebrew music filled the air as hundreds of students, faculty and community members "traveled" from Israel city to city, experiencing the highlights each location had to offer. The "tour," led by Hillel Director Rabbi Dov Oliver, began at Ben Gurion Airport, where each person received a passport with a map of Israel. When all cities on the passport were stamped, participants receive a free gift.

In "Jerusalem," participants placed notes in a Kotel replica. "Tel Aviv" featured vendors selling Israeli food, jewelry and apparel. At "Mount Carmel," everyone got down to earth with new plantings, representing the rebuilding of the forests recently ravaged by fires. In "Eilat," students played "beach" volleyball. In "Tzfat," they learned the Kabbalistic concepts of chesed (kindness), gevurah (severity or strength) and tiferet (beauty), by engaging in the correlated activities of giving charity; arm-wrestling and creating an artistic mosaic.
