Mission Statement

Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life enables Jewish students of all backgrounds to explore and celebrate their Jewish identity through its global network of over 500 regional centers, campus Foundations and Jewish student organizations. Hillel actively seeks to engage uninvolved Jewish students on their own terms: to provide Jewish opportunities that are meaningful and appealing to them.

Any student may participate in Hillel no membership is required.

Alternative Breaks

For the last eight years, Hillel has been inspiring socially responsible young Jews through Alternative Breaks, providing Jewish college students with intensive, immersion experiences that involve hands-on service, community interaction, and unique opportunities to strengthen and explore their Jewish identities and commitment to social responsibility. In the last four years alone, over 4,000 Jewish college students have participated in alternative break volunteer programs, performing direct services for communities in need throughout the world, including the Gulf Coast where Hillel coordinates the only national Jewish volunteer effort.
