Beyond the news and disturbing images of college campuses riven by conflict, we must also consider the question, “How are the kids doing?” Join Rabbinical School alumni Rabbi Getzel Davis `13, Campus Rabbi for Harvard Hillel, and Rabbi Seth Wax `13, Jewish Chaplain and Williams College Jewish Association advisor at Williams College, in conversation about how Jewish college students are managing during this stressful time and the ways they are being supported.
