|Destructive Group Information|
Is Your Student Group Destructive?
The University is a world with many decisions, anxieties and emotional pressures. There are times when you may feel homesick, unloved or overwhelmed. You may decide to turn to a religious group for support. You can expect a good experience with most religious groups at JHU. However, at these times of stress, high-pressure religious groups may seek you out and try to recruit you.
Some ways to identify high-pressure groups:Observe the group's responses to you and how you feel. If you can answer 'yes' to three or more of these statements, you should seriously reconsider your involvement.
If you can answer "YES" to any three of these questions, you should consider talking to a campus professional about the group. Remember...
...If you have any questions, call JHU Campus Ministries @ (410)-516-1880.

Meet our Faith Groups!
The Seven Branch Candelabra was commanded by G-d to be placed in the Tabernacle and then was placed in the Holy Temples. It is displayed on the bright blue background. In Jewish holy writ, it states that the candle represents the good deed or mitzvah while the flame represents wisdom (Torah Knowledge). The menorah is an everlasting symbol that we can only serve the Al-mighty if we internalize the wisdom of the ages and this should lead to good deeds that are done spontaneously and wisely rather than mechanically and by rote.
