Why we are On One Foot
Our reigning On One Foot champions are back for a third year to build on their success and take Guelph Hillel to the next level! The mighty Gryphons from this small "aggie" town boast almost 1000 Jewish students on campus and one of the most active and involved Jewish student populations.
Our team is raising money this year in memory of a pillar of the Guelph Jewish community, Jeff White, who unexpectedly and tragically died this past summer, with so much more life to live. Jeff was a graduate of the University of Guelph himself and was actively involved in creating and strengthening Jewish life. He loved the Guelph Hillel students, always welcomed them into his home and was present on campus to support all of their community building efforts. He gave generously of his time and resources and is deeply missed.
In memory of Jeff's extraordinary leadership in the community and unending generosity, we are creating the Jeff White Fund for Community Building. The fund will support initiatives that bring diverse student groups together, connect Jewish students with the larger Guelph community and invest in creative outreach strategies to build an even stronger campus community.
May his memory be for a blessing.
