Partnering in Students’ Jewish Journeys
At college, Hillel is the most critical component of the students’ Jewish journeys. We take our mission seriously, and we are proud to add our expertise to what parents, grandparents, teachers, rabbis and counselors, have already provided. Consider a few impactful ways you can still make a difference by partnering with us:
Join our Parents Circle
All students are welcome at Hillel!
Take comfort in knowing that our regular programming (weekly Shabbat Dinners, Birthright Israel trips, holiday celebrations, leadership opportunities, social justice programs, and religious and social events) is free of charge.
On top of all that, our Parent Circle is one more way you can help your student stay connected to Jewish life through Hillel’s warm, vibrant, and diverse community on their campus and while they are away from home.
Enroll now and we will hand deliver to dorm, apartment or house four timely care packages throughout the school year, a birthday delivery for birthdays that fall during class – and of course Matzah Ball soup to ease anything that ails. We will provide that very-appreciated-little-bit-of-home for your college student for a one-time fee of $360. And now, student leaders at each campus will determine how the revenue generated will be spent to enhance student life at Hillel.
