Hillel’s Ask Big Questions asks: Where Do You Give?
We are thrilled to announce that Ask Big Questions, an initiative of Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life, has chosen Where Do You Give? as their “Big Question” for the month of December!
Ask Big Questions is built on the premise that we can change the world through better conversation. “Big Questions” are concerned with the topics that matter to all of us, regardless of our religious traditions, cultural heritage, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and personal or political beliefs. Together, through these conversations, we can understand each other, understand ourselves, and make the world a better place.
See below for a special note from Ask Big Questions about this month’s partnership. We can’t wait to help spark the conversation and ask the big question: Where Do You Give?
The December holidays are a time of giving. We give gifts, of course, but we also give of our time and energy—to our families and loved ones, and to our communities. It’s a season of volunteering, and a time for making charitable contributions.
So our question this month is, Where do you give? We’re partnering with the great folks at the Where Do You Give initiative at American Jewish World Service with the hope that, as we gather with family and friends at this time, we can have some meaningful conversations about who we give to and why.
Do you think about the people who need you the most, regardless of where they live? Do you like to give locally? Are certain groups more important than others? Why?
We know there are some great conversations to come from this question. Take a look at our conversation guide, and print out a few copies to use when your family gathers together in the coming weeks. Share your reflections with us at AskBigQuestions.org.
From all of us at Ask Big Questions, our best wishes for a joyful and memorable holiday season!
