Jewish Graduate Programming
UChicago Hillel aims to build a strong community for graduate students at UChicago and beyond. We provide support to the existing Jewish Student Associations at UChicago graduate and professional schools, and we serve as a unifying body, planning and implementing programming for the Jewish graduate community at UChicago.

Jewish Graduate Student Affinity Groups
Jewish Public Policy Association
Harris JSIG (Jewish Student Interest Group) aims to promote a greater understanding of Jewish identity and culture among the Harris community. By providing a forum for students to celebrate holidays, JSIG aims to fosters a supportive community for those of the Jewish faith. As an inclusive organization, JSIG provides opportunities to learn about Jewish traditions and culture for anyone who is interested, regardless of religious or cultural background. JSIG partners primarily with UChicago Hillel to promote events and programs for the graduate student community.
Divinity School Jewish Students Association
The Divinity School Jewish Students Association (DJSA) is an all-inclusive, Jewish-oriented community that will come together to discuss and celebrate Jewish learning and living. We hope this club will nourish Divinity School students intellectually, socially and spiritually by offering Jewish wisdom, tradition, community and food.
Jewish Business Student Association
The Jewish Business Student Association (JBSA) fosters Jewish life at the the University of Chicago Booth School of Business by offering cultural, social, religious, and educational activities to the Chicago Booth Jewish community, including partners, family and friends. JBSA connects young adults across all of the University of Chicago graduate programs by providing resources and experiences that link them to one another and to the community.
Jewish Medical Students Association
The Jewish Medical Student Association sponsors social and educational events including speakers and seminars on topics involving Judaism and medicine for Jewish medical students and others who are interested in learning about Judaism.
Jewish Law Students Association
JLSA is one of the largest and most active Law School student organizations. JLSA offers a wide range of programming to satisfy the diverse social, cultural, religious, and intellectual needs of Jewish students, and to introduce the Law School community to issues of importance to world Jewry. We sponsor speakers on issues such as the Arab-Israeli peace accords, hate crimes, church-state issues, civil rights, and Jewish legal topics. Our cultural/religious programming includes ever-popular Friday night dinners, bagel brunches, and holiday celebrations. Members of our group also participate in local social action programs such as fundraising for the United Jewish Appeal.
