Mori Rothman, '11: Having a spiritual life on campus helped inform my entire experience at Middlebury. For me, college was about building community and learning about how to become a better person, which are both things I searched for in my spiritual life. I felt that people were largely very open to learning and understanding where I was coming from in terms of my spiritual practice-- and in some ways, I found Jewish practice easier at Middlebury than I do now, living in Jerusalem, in that it was less politicized and less rigid, and it felt like there was, in some ways, more space to struggle with and to embrace religion and religious practices than in most other places I've been in the world.
