One of the Jewish people’s defining commandments is to transform our houses into identifiably Jewish homes, and we do this by affixing a mezuzah to the doorposts of our entryways. Schools are traditionally exempt from this mitzvah since the commandment only applies to places where one resides. Hillel Day School, however, is truly a second home for our students, faculty, and the Jewish community.
In honor of Hillel’s 60th Anniversary, we invite you to join us in fulfilling this important and meaningful mitzvah by dedicating new mezuzot, created by our students, for the school. This unique program will enhance our school with the beauty and holiness of our Jewish tradition, while also supporting tuition assistance and other areas of the school.
Our mezuzah campaign will culminate with a special dedication for all donors in the summer of 2018 when we will affix the mezuzot. A special plaque will also be erected commemorating all donors.
