In our socially distanced world, students across Georgia are relying on Hillel for access to Jewish community and experiences during the High Holidays and throughout the year. Your generous support allows us to continue to offer connections and programs to meet Jewish students' interests while keeping them safe and healthy.
Welcome, GSU Alumni!
Much like there is no “typical” GSU student, there’s really no “typical” Hillel experience either. For some students, we’re a source of community programming and Jewish education. Fellowships, trips, gatherings, networking opportunities - we got it all and more! For others, we’re a support network of friends on hard days and a hype team on good ones. And yet for everyone, we strive to be a dependable, transformative Jewish home away from home.
You, our alumni, make it possible to do what we do. By staying in touch, offering your guidance, and showing your support for Hillel’s programs and initiatives, we’re able to reach more students and make a difference on and off campus. Thank you for all that you do!
And, importantly, we’re in your corner as well! I’m always here for you if you’re curious about GSU Jewish life, want to learn more about our programs, or are eager to find a local Jewish community close to where you live! Just reach out and say hi!
I still fondly recall wonderful Jewish programming that created lifelong friendships and treasured memories during my student experience with Hillel. Many years later, I have the privilege of serving as faculty advisor for GSU Hillel since 2014.
Think back on your days as a GSU student and your activities with Hillel--the activities, hangout lunches, and strong communities you built. GSU alumni are loyal to their school because, regardless of their diverse professional paths, they are bonded by a transformative college experience.
Hillel adds an extra layer to that transformation--students learn to embrace their Jewish identity as yet another source of empowerment. Through Hillel’s programming, teaching, and community engagement, hundreds of GSU students have enhanced their Jewish identity by virtue of their Hillel home away from home. We are changing the Jewish future for the better, and we have our alumni to help support GSU students. Through your mentorship, your guidance, your generous giving, and your staying in touch, YOU make Hillel a vital part of the Jewish college experience for hundreds. For that, we thank you.
And just as you support Hillel, we too want to be here to support you! If you are an alumnus or friend of GSU Hillel who wants to stay connected to our campus life, would like to mentor a student, and/or help GSU Hillel in other ways, feel free to contact me anytime!
