Through the use of Facebook and Twitter, Liberal Judaism has greatly increased its ability to reach Progressive Jewish student on campus in 2012.

Rabbi Ariel said: “Although we’re better connected to our students than ever before, there’s nothing like receiving a Chanukkah pack through the post – especially one that contains a dreidel and gelt.

“We hope this brings a little light into everyone’s life during the festival.”
