About the Center
Since opening in November 1997, the Roth Center has provided a home and a sense of family for Dartmouth students and the Upper Valley Jewish Community (UVJC). For students, the Roth Center is open 24 hours (very important during finals!), providing students a quiet, relaxing place to study and oftentimes snack as well! Many students also teach children at the UVJC Religious School. Hillel and the UVJC have collaborated successfully on religious and academic programs to the benefit of both communities and continue to build a relationship through various events.
The Roth Center is home to a kosher kitchen, which is open to be used by anyone who demonstrates an ability and knowledge to keep it kosher. The kitchen is also where all student-prepared Shabbat dinners are cooked, and where many a late-night study snack has been whipped up.
