Aleinu – Aleinu is the DCSA's only group with a Jewish approach to community service and social justice. We want to make
concerted efforts to approach issues both domestically and internationally that are important to all who are involved. Not so much
importance is placed on the completion of a specific project, but a just approach to any goal we strive towards. This necessitates
an open arena for intellectual dialogue and discussion. Therefore, though we have Judaism in mind, we welcome all faiths, all
backgrounds, all opinions, all minds, all hands and all feet to bring something special to DePaul University, our own communities
and the world abroad. Our focus is on education and knowledge in all of its forms, so this is what we hope to serve.
