Roy P. and Nan Ans Hillel House
Under the leadership of College President Mitchell B. Reiss and a specially appointed fundraising committee, Washington College has created a Hillel House on campus to support a growing and vibrant community of Jewish students. The house is located at 313 Washington Avenue, situated directly adjacent to the Washington College campus. There is a large kosher kitchen and a gathering space big enough to accommodate lectures and other events.
The Hillel House is open to the Washington College community and visitors every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 10 a.m.- 5 p.m.

Message from the Chair
It is my pleasure to report on recent progress on the Hillel House at Washington College. Gifts and pledges to the project currently stand at more than $201,000, and the renovation is nearly complete. All of the drywall is finished, new kitchen cabinets and counters have been installed, the heating system is complete and with heat in the house, final paint coats, hardwood floors, and installation of new kitchen appliances will be completed by mid-December.
The College is developing plans to dedicate the House in the spring. These plans are not firm yet, but we will, of course, keep you informed as these efforts unfold.
Appearing to the right are donors to the project to date and I’m especially happy to note that contributions have been received from alumni spanning seven decades. We are immensely grateful to everyone who has participated in this project so far. While we’re delighted to have exceeded $200,000 so that we can complete construction, we are hoping to build an endowment for the House that will support permanent programming for Hillel.
If you have not already supported this project, I encourage you to consider what you can do as the end of the tax year approaches. Barbara Heck, Interim Vice President for College Advancement, will be happy to talk with you about a year-end gift. She can be reached at 800-422-1782, ext. 7805. In the meantime, please know how grateful we are for your interest in Hillel at Washington College.
With best regards,
Roy P. Ans ‘63, M.D.
