Tomorrow at Stanford Hillel

I'll join Ken Arrow tomorrow, to help celebrate Stanford Hillel's 50th anniversary:

Community Open House: Something for Everyone
Saturday, April 2 @ 12:00 pm
Learn about the economics of matchmaking with Professor Al Roth at 2:30 pm.

Following lunch at noon, long-time Hillel Director Rabbi Ari Cartun will be leading the community in Jewish learning. All levels of experience are welcome.

At 2:30 pm, we're excited to host esteemed faculty member Nobel Laureates for TED Talks at Hillel@Stanford. What do the Fiddler on the Roof classic, "Matchmaker," and economic theories have in common? Find out Saturday during a discussion on the economics of matchmaking with Al Roth. Join American economist, writer and political theorist Ken Arrow for his reflections on an academic life and the role of Judaism in it.

The Jewish Women's Theatre will lead a special performance entitled, "UNCUFFED" at 3:30 pm. JWT was co-founded by Stanford alumna Ronda Spinak, '80, "with the express purpose of developing stories written by Jewish women about their lives in America today," she said.

At 4:30 pm, former Hillel staff member Rabbi Mychal Copeland will discuss her book, Struggling in Good Faith, a multifaceted source book telling the story of reconciliation, celebration and struggle for LGBTQI inclusion across the American religious landscape. Rabbi Copeland was the rabbi at Hillel@Stanford for more than 10 years. She currently serves as Director of InterfaithFamily/Bay Area.
