Along the Walk

Lisa Kassow and a student
Hillel Director Lisa Kassow and Paige Wright ’25 take part in Kassow’s spring 2022 wellness course, “The Jewish Table: Cuisine and Culture.” The course, which fulfills a requirement of the college’s new curriculum, comprised a series of two-hour sessions focusing on the history, cultural practices, and cuisines of many countries where Jewish communities have thrived through the ages. Kassow, who after 20 years at Trinity was set to retire in June, said she will miss spending time with students at the Zachs Hillel House. “I have cherished the open-ended opportunity to creatively explore Jewish thought, values, culture, and identity with the Hillel community of students, staff, and faculty at Trinity.”
