Read by the River 2013

Sunday, March 10 was the annual Read by the River event. This kid’s carnival focusing on literacy is sponsored by Tufts Hillel.

In order to enter the carnival, which was held at the Gantcher Center,¬†children presented a book report. The theme of this year’s fair, “Reading Around Boston,” included booths with games and arts and crafts – many with a literary focus – as well as a scavenger hunt and bean bag toss. This year, New England Patriot’s Ryan Wendell attended to talk about his own experiences with reading. He also read a story and signed autographs.

With nearly 850 children at the carnival, it was a huge literary success!

An Evening with Survivors of Genocide

On Feb. 24, Tufts Hillel hosted a discussion with survivors from multiple 20th-century genocides around the world, as part of the Holocaust and Genocide Education program. You can now watch the archived video from the event.

Trustee Emeritus Bill Cummings, A58, H06, M97P, J97P, and Joyce Cummings, M97P, J97P, moved by Eliezer Ayalon’s stories of his experiences during and after the Holocaust, were inspired to think broadly about how education could help prevent such a horrific tragedy from ever happening again. The couple has now committed to a gift of $1 million to endow a new program in Holocaust and Genocide Education at Tufts Hillel, provided the same amount can be raised from other friends.

Learn more about the challenge and how to participate.
