Heroism at Sapir Hillel in Sderot The Jerusalem Post is proud to present The Hillel Experience; a blog which provides a platform for Hillel members to share their experiences on campus. We invite you to submit your articles and the best ones will be published both here and in the Hillel newsletter. Dear friends, All through the fall semester, Hillel Israel centers have been struggling heroically to attract students to programs in spite of a prolonged professors' strike that was responsible for the rescheduling of a full semester of classes.
