HUMAN MENORAH AT NORTHEASTERN
Students Create Live Human Menorah for Hanukkah Music Video
On November 25th, hundreds of Northeastern University students and administrators gathered in Krentzman Quad to celebrate the release of a new Channukah song with Northeastern Hillel. The song, entitled “Suf-Ga-Ni-Ya” was based on a tune by Israeli singer Noa, and adapted by composer Matti Kovler, Jewish Music Theater’s Artistic Director and Northeastern Hillel’s Artist-in-Residence.
At the end of the video, the joyful dancing crowd formed a “live menorah,” comprised of students, sending a resounding message of support for the Northeastern community’s commitment to diversity. The menorah was created in the spirit of President Aoun’s “State of the University” speech, where he mandated that Northeastern University:
“…be a model of diversity, not just among universities, but in society. We are, and must continue to be, a place where every student, faculty, colleague, and staff member feels welcome, regardless of her background, beliefs or faith. We must continue to be a place where a culture of respect prevails in all that we do…”
Hillel is proud that through its celebration, it was able to give body to President Aoun’s words.
“Over 500 sufganiyot (donuts) were given out in 15 minutes… It was an exhilarating experience to have so many community members come together in Krentzman to celebrate the resurgence of Jewish life on campus” said Northeastern Hillel’s Executive Director, Arinne Braverman.
Please consider making a donation to Northeastern Hillel this Chanukah here to help support Jewish cultural, social, religious, and educational experiences like these in the coming year.
