Once a year, we celebrates our accomplishments and honor our incredibly generous supporters who helped us to achieve them in an evening full of entertainment, food, and fun!



Hillel at UGA has a long and respected history in Athens. Building on that history, Hillels of Georgia is preparing to break ground on a new, state-of-the-art building for the next generation of students to enjoy!

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.

The Hineni Campaign is Hillel of Georgia's student giving campaign. We ask our students to stand with Hillel and say with us, “Hineni, I am here.” In giving what they can, student gifts to the Hineni Campaign demonstrate the lasting power of Hillel on campus.

Jeremy Lichtig

Campus Director


Dear Alumni of HillelUGA,

I hope this note finds you well, healthy and safe, for those of you that do not know me my name is Jeremy Lichtig and I am the new Campus Director at Hillel UGA. For years I have worked with the Hillel UGA community and I am so excited to step into this new role!


Let me be the first to welcome all graduates of HillelUGA to our Alumni portal.  As a graduate, HillelUGA considers you family.  We want to stay connected to encourage you and walk side-by-side with you on your journey.  

This portal will be used to update you on everything going on with HillelUGA. My goal is to have a communication network among the alumni to spread good news and update you on all the things we are doing in Athens to continue to help students develop a Jewish identity and a connection to Israel.

We hope that you will take advantage of this portal and stay in touch with us, let us know if you arrive in Athens and can join us for Shabbat, know any students at UGA we can reach out to, or just help us spread the word on all that we do at HillelUGA.

We are asking for your testimonials, ideas, support, and community to strengthen and pave the way for others to learn about HillelUGA. 

We are proud of our alumni and hope to connect with you soon. All the best!

Emroy- Parents


We are excited to welcome your student to their Jewish home away from home! At Hillel we seek to create an open, inclusive Jewish environment for every student, and our staff will strive to ensure that everyone feels at home as a vital member of our Hillel family.
