A group of Washington University students and faculty organized and participated in a counter protest to the Westboro Baptist Church’s demonstration on Friday against the Transgender Spectrum Conference held on campus over the weekend. WashU Hillel participated in the demonstration, and our Campus Rabbi Jordan Gerson was quoted in this article.
WashU Hillel was proud to participate in this year's St. Louis PrideFest Parade with other members of the St. Louis Jewish community, and staff member Miriam Ross-Hirsch even got to hold the banner! Read about it in this article from the St. Louis Jewish Light.
