What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Hillel of San Diego is the vital link – to social, emotional, and spiritual nourishment for college students in San Diego. Hillel serves to provide students with meaningful connections and engagement in Jewish life, learning, and Israel. The Hillel model of engagement focuses not only on breadth of involvement but also on depth of experience with the goal of students not just participating in one-off events but being active members in the Hillel community. The ultimate goal is for students to leave Hillel more connected to their own Jewish identity and more likely to continue being an active part of their Jewish community at large.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Through Hillel of San Diego, students on the campuses of San Diego State University, UC San Diego, University of San Diego, and California State University San Marcos, they find an open, warm, pluralistic environment in which they can discover meaning by connecting socially, culturally, and spiritually to their Judaism.

Hillel of San Diego's role is as the connector and educator for students from diverse Jewish backgrounds to feel empowered and connected to their Jewish community. Hillel of San Diego proactively fights hate through three strategies: Allyship, Partnerships with University Administration: and Jewish Student Empowerment.

All Hillel programs foster inclusivity and celebrate each student for their unique gifts. Students within our community are empowered to offer their own voices within our programs in a space where viewpoint diversity and individual upbringing and heritage is not only welcome but celebrated.

Hillel of San Diego staffs 10 professionals, a contract accounting team, and several student interns.
