Who We Are

Our goal is to enrich students' lives with a home and a place to explore their Jewish identity during their college journey. Whether it be celebrating Jewish holidays, learning opportunities, pastoral care, Taglit-Birthright and other service projects, HCNE is the foundation that completes the circle of Jewish campus life.

This year, for the first time ever (and for the last time for more than 70,000 years), the first day of Hanukkah falls on Thanksgiving on November 28. This once-in-a-lifetime holiday mash-up has been dubbed Thanksgivukkah. Awesome, right?!
The team at JewishBoston.com is so excited for this miraculous holiday that they created a special holiday website at ThankgivukkahBoston.com with loads of content to enjoy and share. From recipes (pumpkin kugel, anyone?) and table decor to craft projects, activities for kids and more, you'll find everything you need to celebrate Thanksgivukkah in style.
