I am working on an art project about the book "Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret" by Judy Blume. This book had a huge impact on my growing up Jewish, suburban and female. Did it change growing up for you? If so, please fill out this short questionnaire. If you have any questions or comments, or, if you would like a collection of excerpts to jog your memory, feel free to e-mail me at pocketsbuttons@gmail.com . thanks! -lauren

hello shalom!

i have a sort of strange question for this community. a friend of mine (goyim) and i (german jewish descent) were talking, and i noticed that he had some semblance of payos (hasidic curls) in development under his short hair. i was always under the assumption that payos were a 'jewish thing', like in a bloodline or something. have i been completely wrong my whole life?

cheers, and thanks for listening to (reading?) my strange question.

Subject:Help for a Grad Student?
Posted by:digiculture.
Time:5:13 pm.
Hello, Hillel Livejournallers! My name is Kris and am currently a graduate student at Northwestern University, where I research student digital culture. I am running a research project now that surveys college students about their use of social networking software - Facebook, MySpace, Livejournal, etc, - and am looking for students to participate.

Do you have 10 minutes and a keen desire to have your (anonymous) opinion count? Or, do you have 10 minutes and a little sympathy for a broke grad. student whose completed thesis is apparently due in less than two months? The survey can be found here and I would really appreciate it if you would click through and complete it.

Thank you so much for your time!

Subject:Birthright trip
Posted by:grvs4104.
Time:1:50 pm.
So has anyone else either gone on the birthright trip, or gone on one very recently? I need some advice about it... because I'm very very highly considering going (i've turned in my application... gotten the interview) but i can't seem to convince my parents to let me go (it's not like i need their permission, I'm 22, but i'd like them to accept the fact that i'm going, etc.) any good advice on how to win my parents over? am i nuts to want to go over there this coming May?

Subject:The Palestian Solidarity Movement
Posted by:jeffpeck.
Time:5:24 am.
The Palestinian Solidarity Movement is planning their annual conference for this February to be held at Georgetown University. (If you want to know more you can google georgetwon psm). My question is, is anybody organizing anything? I want to try to organize something to bring people down there from CT, but I would like to find out if anybody is already on the case?

For those unfamiliar: The PSM is an umbrella organization that connects various U.S. and Canadian groups; its yearly gathering offers an opportunity for the constituent elements to establish a visible presence on a prestigious university campus and plan strategy and tactics for a movement dedicated to delegitimizing the state of Israel. Over the past several years, the convocation has been held at Ohio State, the University of Michigan and the University of California at Berkeley. In October, it was the turn of Duke University.

At the last conference held at Duke University in 2004, Huwaida Arraf, one of the PSM's main organizers, admitted that the Palestine Solidarity Movement works with Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

Please, if anybody knows of anybody who is organizing something let me know. Thanks.

Subject:Temple Hillel
Posted by:mish787.
Time:7:23 pm.

Is anyone here a member of Hillel at Temple University in Philadelphia?

I have started a Hillel club at Jewish Connection for all Jewish college students in the Philly/Jesey/Delaware area. This is really helpful, especially if you are looking for a job upon graduation because there is a classifieds page on Jewish Connection you can look through for jobs or internships.

Subject:Also about Elie Wiesel
Posted by:shalom_sum_sum.
Time:11:05 am.
On October 31 at 7:00pm in Metcalf Hall of Boston University's George Sherman Union, Elie Wiesel will be giving a free lecture on The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. The auditorium fills up quickly, so I recommend getting there 1/2 hour to an hour early. This is an amazing opportunity to hear the Nobel Prize winner speak on a fascinating and very scary topic (just in time for Halloween).
I urge you all to go.

Posted by:ewiesel.
Time:9:53 am.
Hi everyone,

I just wanted to let you all know about an amazing opportunity for college students-- the Elie Wiesel Prize in Ethics Essay Contest. The competition was founded by Elie Wiesel, a Nobel Laureate and Holocaust survivor, and it is a great way to make your voice heard about issues of religion, ethics, and justice. Here's some information about the Contest:

Now entering its 17th year, the Prize in Ethics Essay Contest is an annual competition designed to challenge college students to analyze the urgent ethical issues confronting them in today's complex world.
Full-time juniors and seniors at accredited four-year colleges and universities in the US are welcome to enter the Essay Contest and compete for $10,000 in prizes and the opportunity to meet Elie Wiesel in New York City.
The postmark deadline is Friday, December 9, 2005.

You can find additional information at www.eliewieselfoundation.org, and you can leave me a comment if you have any questions!
