Attend a Prayer Service

For this activity, it was very easy to use the online tool to locate a Hillel near my campus. There were multiple options for Friday night services on the evening that I attended. The service that I attended was very lively and full of young people around my age but it took slightly longer than the other services. Overall it was a fantastic experience and I would be happy to go back to experience the energy of the service again.

Download a Jewish App

Jswipe is an App I was already aware of through family members who were already trying it out. I never thought I would give it a try but I did and I have to say i enjoy it very much. I have yet to meet with anyone I have met on it but I look at it everyday and am just waiting to build up to courage to go on a date through the site. I would definitely recommend it to my friends, especially the ones already using dating apps.

Reflections on Judaism

On my birthright trip to Israel I was lucky enough to have had a Bar Mitzvah on the top of Masada. I was given the name Dov which means bear. In the bible Dov is a reference to strength which is fitting for me due to my larger then normal size and strength that i have.

Take a Course about Judaism- Earn $100

The Habits of Happiness film series was one of my favorite courses that I had the privilege of taking do to the nature of it being a more physiological and motivating course but also all the interesting things I was able to learn and apply to my everyday life. I learned a lot from the course but there were three things that stuck out to me the most and that was because of how close these three topics intertwined with each other. The first thing that I learned was positive psychology. I learned that by just putting more effort into focusing on the positives, rather then thinking about all the negatives that could go wrong, situations in my everyday life had a more positive outcome. When I would think more negative I felt like my day would become more negative vs if I thought more positive thoughts the more positive my day became. The second thing I learned was that happiness has a lot to do with self-esteem as well as from values that we acquire in our own life. This can be as simple as making new friends like I did on my birthright trip or to achieving life set goals that you’ve had set for a long time. One of my goals when I was younger which I recently achieved was to graduate from college. Lastly I learned how important is it to remain close to those who are important in your life such as your family and friends. On days where I feel more down having that close bond with a friend or family member that you can easily call just to talk to for a few minutes can have a huge positive impact on your day. I talk to my dad everyday on the phone sometimes about random things just to keep in touch and other times about more serious problems going on whether that be at work or school but just having someone there to help and voice their opinion makes a huge difference.

Take a Course about Judaism- Earn $100

The Impact: Make Your Mark film series was a very informative and eye opening course that I enjoyed from start to finish. I learned a lot from the course but there were three things that stuck out to me the most. The first thing that I learned was the ABCs of Jewish Leadership. They are Ahava, which is love of everyone not in spite of differences, but because of their differences, Bitachon which is Trust in G-d, and Confidence in your abilities as a Jewish Leader. The second thing that I learned was what it truly means to be Jewish and connect my Jewish values and routes to achieve anything I set out to do in life. The third thing I learned which was pretty cool to me was some of the few ways others have implemented their Jewish values into their everyday lives. An example of that was from Matt Bar who brought Judaism into his passion of Hip Hop. Matt created a Bible Raps, which is used today to teach Jewish traditions, values, and ethics to a younger crowd but in a more fun and entertaining way to engage people in the learning process
