COVID-19 UPDATES & INFORMATION
HOW is staying apprised of the evolving situations on campus and in the Westchester community. Check back regularly for updates.
How is HOW Responding
During the 2020-2021 academic year, Hillels of Westchester switched over to a completely virtual mode.
The staff had developed a calendar filled with ongoing educational, social, and stress relief programs,
as well collaborated with outside organizations to provide a wide array of content as well as
volunteering opportunities for students. Many different Care - kits have been curated and sent out
to students in order to connect with them from far.
