Our mission is to enrich the lives of these individuals so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world.

Programming

for Students by Students

JEWISH LIFE

From student leadership opportunities to weekly Shabbat dinners and so much more, our wide range of programs offer an option for everyone

TIKKUN OLAM

Hebrew for “Repair the World” is a central-Jewish value. We at Hillel encourage and support students in efforts to better our community and connect students with programs that give them the chance to do exactly that.

LEADERSHIP

The backbone of Hillel's student-led and student-driven model, students serve in a wide array of leadership positions to envision robust Jewish life on campus while receiving dedicated mentorship and supervision from Hillel's professional staff.

 

If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I?
And if not now, when? 

-Rabbi Hillel
