University of Denver Hillel

Denver University Hillel is a proud part of Hillel of Colorado – which also includes the Colorado State Hillel – serving students with traditional programming such as Shabbat dinners, holiday celebrations, social justice initiatives, and religious and social programs; leadership programs to train the Jewish leaders of tomorrow, and Israel programs including Birthright Israel travel opportunities and Israel education, dialogue, and advocacy.

Exciting new things are happening at Denver University Hillel this winter! Enjoy this video our campus marketing intern made — featuring photos and interviews!

DU Hillel now offers a new Shabbat initiative, “DU Hillel Across Denver,” with bi-monthly Shabbat home-hospitality dinners to encourage students to form community even when they are away from our Hillel House. Students will build bridges with the wider Denver Jewish community, and become accustomed to creating their own Shabbat dinner experiences — building enduring Jewish experiences that last beyond their college years!

In addition to our fine programs for Shabbat, DU Hillel offers bi-monthly Torah and yoga classes—a way for our students to explore their spiritual selves. DU Hillel students just returned from a wonderful December in Israel: find out about our next Birthright Israel free trip. Take advantage of opportunities to stay in touch with Hillel after graduation through our new Friends of Hillel program. Join our thriving Jewish community, open to all, that lets you “do Jewish your way!”

Hillel of Colorado helps to build a community where Jewish values enrich the lives of students during their college years and beyond, inspiring every Jewish student to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning, and Israel – thereby making the world a better place.
