What is Hillel?

Hillel, the Foundation for Jewish Campus Life, is an international organization that provides opportunities for college students around the world to explore and celebrate their Jewish identity.

Hillel’s mission is to enrich the lives of Jewish undergraduate and graduate students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world. We are dedicated to creating a pluralistic, welcoming and inclusive environment for Jewish college students, where they are encouraged to grow intellectually, spiritually and socially.

Hillel strives to help students find a balance in being distinctively Jewish and universally human by encouraging them to pursue tzedek (social justice), tikkun olam (repairing the world) and a global Jewish culture.
