Communities and Student Groups

Building community and supporting student groups is at the core of what Hillel does.

Staff and students work in tandem to build friendships, community experiences, and opportunities

to explore Judaism during college years.    

Community Building

Every quarter, Hillel provides special late-night programming to help students unwind. 

Hillel After Hours

Together, we learn how to strengthen the community that we want to be a part of. 

Mensch Training and Town Halls

We encourage students to come together based on their shared passions, whatever they are.

Micro Communities

Student Groups

We provide student groups with space to meet, micro-grants, leadership development, and ongoing staff support.

Whether campus-based or affiliated with a national organization, we encourage students to pursue their interests and build opportunities on campus to engage with Jewish ideas, community, and commitments.
