Shabbat
Friday Night services at 5:30, dinner at 6:30. Come for either or both, it’ll be great food and a lot of fun as always!
Community Supper
Havurah, the Jewish community in town, is running this week’s community supper – a restaurant style meal in town open to all residents of Addison County. It’s on Friday, and Hillel usually helps out by bringing students down to help with the setting up and serving. If you’re interested in going, we’ll be meeting at ADK circle at 4:15 on Friday to walk down together.  It’s a lot of fun and Community Suppers can always use extra hands, so if you have time make sure to come by!

Havdalah

Hillel will also be holding a Havdalah service at the Jewish Center on Saturday night at 5:30pm. Havdalah is a short service (10 minutes or so) that marks the end of Shabbat and the transition into the week. It’s quick and really enjoyable, and if you’ve never been to Havdalah before we’ll explain the steps.

We’ll be lighting a menorah together at the Jewish Center tonight (Wed.) at 5:30pm, Thursday at 5:30, Friday right before Shabbat, and Saturday also at 5:30pm.

Annual Classics Department Reading: The Aeneid

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Each year, students and faculty in the Classics Department host a reading of a complete work from antiquity, outside on the Davis Family Library front steps. Anyone is welcome to stop by and listen!

The Latin epic about the destruction of one civilization and the founding of another, Vergil’s Aeneid recounts the wanderings of the hero Aeneas from the ruins of Troy to the shores of Italy, and describes with moving detail the wars he must fight in order to establish a line of leaders that will eventually lead to the Roman Caesars. (Thank you to Randy Ganiban for the blurb!)

The Aeneid will be read from at the following times:
Friday: 3:30 pm – 6:00 pm
Saturday: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Sunday: 10:00 am – noon (or until completed)

Baklava will be provided, and if you’d like to read (usually done in 30 minute increments), you also get a text and a nifty authentic Olympic crown* while you read!

*Crown made in present-day, not in Ancient Greece. No Olympic medals or achievement of world records included with crown.

If you’re interested in signing up ahead of time for a reading slot, please contact Giulia Scelzo or Christian Brady.
