Charlie Arnowitz '13: I am a proud member of Middlebury’s Jewish community. To me, there is something special and deeply spiritual about taking a few hours at the end of every week to transition into the weekend, and also real value in being involved with Jewish cultural activities. I wish people understood that in Judaism, our community is simultaneously the foundation of both our tradition and of our contemporary world outlooks. And at Middlebury, being involved in that community is, for many, an important connection to our home lives and to our values. If a liberal arts education is meant to enrich the whole person, then being involved in spiritual life, for me, has provided another lens for looking at the world and thinking about the things I learn in class and the things I do everyday.
