Jewish Student Groups

Jewish students are involved in almost every Registered Student Organization on campus. These student groups are specifically tailored around Jewish actions and ideas and are welcome to all students at the University of Chicago. 

Green Team's goal is to make Hillel more environmentally friendly including expanding the composting program and working on sustainability initiatives.

The Hillel Green Team is supported by the Hazon Seal of Sustainability

WonderWomen is a student-led group that brings together women from all different backgrounds to create a supportive and enriching Jewish community. We hope to provide women a space to express their Judaism regardless of their level of religious practice or experience with Jewish tradition.

All are welcome!

RnJ is UChicago's premiere (and only) Jewish a cappella group. We are a healthy mixture of Jews and non-Jews and guys and girls, but we all love to have fun singing together! We perform at events around Chicagoland, participate in the ICCA a cappella competition, and organize singing tours in cities around the country.

Rhythm & Jews

First and foremost, we are a group of friends who live together, eat together, work together, and hang out together. We are men who seek to enhance our college experience, complimenting our academic pursuits by providing a fun and supportive environment that allows us to thoroughly enjoy everything that The University of Chicago and the City of Chicago have to offer. 


All UChicago Hillel programs are made possible through the generosity of the Jewish community. 

University of Chicago Hillel is an initiative

of the Jewish United Fund, supported by
