Achoti (Hebrew for “my sister”) is Hillel's Jewish women’s sisterhood. It was started in 2009 as a way for Jewish female students at Kent State and The University of Akron to commune regularly to talk about issues relating to their current lives – including dating, self image, and physical health. 

Mission Statement:
Achoti (“my sister”) is Hillel at Kent State’s sisterhood initiative that seeks to provide a gender inclusive environment in which Jewish women can meet new friends and leave with a sense of empowerment.  Achoti exists as an outlet for Jewish women were one does not exist on campus and provides a Jewish alternative to the traditional sorority model, founded on the principle that Jewish women are unified in our Jewish culture.

How does Achoti work?
Achoti programming consists of 6+ events per year operating on three main principles:

Empowerment: Achoti seeks to empower women as successful leaders, personally and professionally

We want everyone to feel comfortable in their own skin by creating and enhancing peer-to-peer connections.

Fun: In a college world filled with exams, papers, internships, and meetings, Achoti provides a fun, relaxed atmosphere as a break from the daily pressures of college life

End of the Year Banquet

At the end of each academic year, Achoti throws a huge banquet at Hillel celebrating the achievements of women in the Jewish community on campus
