We offer a range of events for students to choose from to enrich their Jewish life and college experience.
College is the perfect time to learn what it takes to lead others. Hillel provides diverse opportunities for students to develop as community leaders and learn new skills along the way.
From festive Shabbat dinners, to inspired holiday traditions, formal learning and more, Hillel is going above and beyond to provide diverse opportunities for Jewish life and learning.
MATZAH BALL SOUP DELIVERY
Is your child sick? Contact Mara and we'll work coordinate with the student to get them a scrumptious bowl of soup as soon as we can and confirm delivery with you. We’ll deliver soup to any Jewish student on campus.
This program is generously sponsored by Men of Reform Judaism.

Jewish Life & Learning
FREE Shabbat dinner every week!
Due to social distancing guidelines, we are limiting the number of people allowed in the Milledge Street Hillel building.
We will have three options for Shabbat:
1) Limited seating in and around the Milledge Street building
2) Shabboxes to take away
3) Catered meals for small communities
Follow us on social media or sign up for the Dawg blog to get the link to register each week.
At UGA, we ensure students have the resources to share a meaningful Passover experience. On the first two nights of Passover, we host student-led seders, followed by kosher lunch throughout the week. Finally, on the last night of Passover we all break bread and celebrate together at the Hillel House. All are welcome to celebrate Passover with us and no registration is required.
To find out when we will be celebrating this year, follow us on social media or sign up for our newsletter.
For more information, contact Mara.
