Guide to the Rice University Hillel t-shirts, 2012-2013 UA 343
Jewish life for Houston’s college students started in 1915 with the establishment of the Menorah Society at Rice University. The purpose of the organization, and its successor the Hillel Society, was to bring Jewish students at Rice together in religious, social, cultural, and charitable activities. The Hillel Society of Houston was established at Rice in 1940, under the directorship of Rabbi Robert Kahn and, following the Second World War, at the University of Houston. Houston Hillel is a multi-campus Hillel Foundation, whose mission is "Houston Hillel enriches the lives of Jewish undergraduate students, graduate students and young professionals so that they may enrich the Houston Jewish community, the Jewish people and the world," according to their website located at http://www.houstonhillel.org/ (accessed Jan. 21, 2016). Hillel activities at Rice University are a part of this larger city group.
This collection includes t-shirts created by the Rice Hillel community in 2012-2013, with a shirt for each of the Rice University residential colleges, featuring the college name written in Hebrew.
