In the autumn of 1925 we had no activities, no following, and very little understanding of our task. We had hopes for the fut¬ ure and liHIe ei.se. A few stud¬ ents caught the vision, and work¬ ed wilh me, A group of .lews on and off the campus was inspir¬ ed by E. J, Schanfarber to take an inlerest in the work. Bit by bit. the institution came to have a shape; the vague dream be¬ came a living program. After a (}Uarter of a century. Hillel is now a permanent insti¬ tution on the American campus, and nol least al Ohio Stale, ll is a center for Jewish young men and women, a hope for .lewish Ideals and .lewish activities, ^'our splendid new home Iiro¬ vides a |)hysical background for these undertakings. The Hillel Finindations are making a sig¬ nificant conlriliution to .lewish life in America, Sincerely, Loe J.
