Howard Feiertag - Hillel at VT Champion and Beloved Board of Director Lived a Life of Hospitality
Howard Feiertag was a well-known veteran in the hospitality industry, and a member of the faculty at Virginia Tech. Howard was also part of Hillel at Virginia Tech's inaugural Board of Directors.
His belief that "one does not really know what something means to them unless they start getting involved in that something" taught about experiential learning even before anyone knew what experiential meant. His philosophy and personal hospitality helped build the warm, welcoming community of Hillel at Virginia Tech's alumni and students.
