The Jewish Women's Group is a new initiative Hillel has started in order to bring together Jewish women, particularly those in Greek life, for meaningful discussion. The group meets once a month, aligning with Rosh Chodesh, the new moon. For our first meeting, we discussed the concept of home. We focused on mezuzahs and read and discussed the prayer held inside, the Shema (Deuteronomy 6: 4-9). First, each member of the group shared what makes a place feel like a home to us personally. We agreed that a home is somewhere we feel completely comfortable to be ourselves and know that we will be just as loved on our worst days as on our best. We then analyzed the words of the Shema.
