Photo Narrative – Zach Arogeti

The Jewish community in Statesboro is quite small. Less than two percent of the students at Georgia Southern are Jewish. Yet, sometimes it seems as if the smallest communities are the closest.

Despite being such a small minority at Southern, Jewish organizations on campus are continuing to strive and grow.

This past Monday April 24th, 2017 was Yom H’Shoa, or Holocaust Remembrance Day. To bring awareness on campus students from Hillel and Alpha Epsilon Pi read names of Holocaust victims. With the words “Never Forget” pasted on their chests, Hillel and AEPi silently marched through campus during the middle of the day.

This is their third year bringing Yom H’Shoa and the Jewish community looks to keep the tradition going strong.
