Grad Student Programs


Sunday, September 18, 2022: 10am

Calling all grad students! We will be meeting at the campanile (clocktower) at 10:00am and walking to the Berkeley Rose Garden! We then plan to walk around the garden and enjoy some snacks at the nearby park. We also made a Facebook event, but you may need to be a member of our Facebook group to access it.

If you plan to or are considering coming, please fill out this google form so that we can make sure we have enough food! Questions? Reach out to Emily Rosenthal at


As we build our graduate program, let us know if you have any thoughts, ideas, and things you’d like to see. Contact Jessica Nevins, Director of Leadership of Berkeley Hillel, at Want to be added to an email listserv? Contact David Tongai Makoni at
