This week, we travel to Cyprus in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, the third largest Mediterranean island, after Sicily and Sardinia. Less than 10,000 km2 in area, Cyprus packs a lot into its small size. It is well known for its rich supply of minerals, wines, produce, and natural beauty.
This week, we are going to the Caribbean and visiting Haïti. Haïti is located on the Caribbean Island of Hispaniola, which it shares with the Dominican Republic to the west. With a population of about 10 million and an area of 10,714 sq. miles, Haïti is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. Less than a third of Haïti’s population is clustered in the capital city of Port-au-Prince, while most of the population resides in rural areas.
Jewish Life at Duke welcomed our students to the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year on August 14, 2020 with our first virtual Shabbat of the semester during Weeks of Welcome.
When Covid-19 presented us with the challenge of how to bring our programming to our students, the JLD team came up with JLD@Home to enable us to connect with our community no matter where they might be. See the offerings delivered via JLD@Home below:
Stories set a powerful context and lay a firm foundation for building a better future. We do this by learning from multiple points of view and experiences. Arguably, our personal stories give meaning to our lives and construct our identities. There is both unity and multiplicity in stories, diversifying our national narrative. This causes freedom to mean different things to different people; our country is struggling to integrate a fragmented freedom narrative.

The weekly fun-letter has always been intended to build a stronger community even while we are apart. If we are to truly build a stronger community, we must work to recognize and support one another.
