Description of Book:
This book is exactly what every Jewish college student needs. You've applied. You've been accepted. You've packed up. And now, finally, off to college you go, leaving your high school days behind, saying goodbye to your parents, your siblings, and your friends. But, something you shouldn’t leave behind is your Judaism.
Jewish U is a hands-on guide to living Jewishly on campus. How to observe your first high holidays away from home. How to decide if you should join a fraternity or sorority. How to find the right place to eat during Passover. How to talk to non-Jewish roommates about Judaism. How to find common ground with Jewish students from different backgrounds. How to find a Jewish home for yourself on campus. College is about diversity, offering up countless options, choices that YOU will now have to make on your own. Jewish U: A Contemporary Guide for the Jewish College Student is an invaluable resource for those about to be presented with these myriad choices.
Alongside the many contemporary resources that he recommends, Scott Aaron incorporates what the Jewish texts have to say about interacting with others, making decisions, and ethical living.
