Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life provides opportunities for Jewish undergraduate and graduate students to explore and celebrate their Jewish identity, enriching their lives and encouraging a life-long commitment to Judaism and our Jewish community.
Hillel is the largest Jewish campus organization in the world. The organization serves students at more than 550 colleges and communities throughout North America and globally, including 30 communities in the former Soviet Union, nine in Israel, and five in South America.
Since its origin in 1923, Hillel has played a critical role in ensuring the future of our Jewish community by creating a welcoming environment for Jewish students on campus and by fostering students’ ability to incorporate Jewish tradition into their lives. Hillel helps students expand Jewish knowledge, hone leadership skills, bolster ties to Israel, and volunteer in social justice work. Just as the university establishes a professional foundation for students’ futures, Hillel builds a Jewish foundation for their lifetime. Hillel equips today’s students to be the supporters and leaders of tomorrow’s Jewish community.
