Hillel at Emory is the premier student organization for building Jewish life on campus for the 2,500 Jewish undergraduate and graduate students at Emory.
Hillel builds community by encouraging participation and involvement among all students and creating a pluralistic, welcoming and inclusive environment.
Each year, 2,000 Jewish undergraduates arrive at Emory ready to grow, explore and set the pattern for their adult lives. Hillel's challenge is to engage them during these identity-forming years in meaningful Jewish experiences for college students.
Originally, Hillel served as the "campus synagogue," addressing the religious concerns of Jewish students on campus. Over the past decade, Hillel has reinvented itself to meet the needs of today's Jewish student. In the 21st century, Hillel is a launching pad for Jewish activity, catering to the diverse interests of students on campus. Hillel is known for its outstanding social, cultural, religious and community service programs.
