Hillel at Emory has five key areas for developing dynamic and vibrant Jewish campus life:
1Jewish Living & LearningHillel fosters Jewish student growth by developing a variety of Jewish religious and spiritual communities, celebrating Jewish holidays and Shabbat in a pluralistic and open environment, and exploring our rich traditions and culture through creative activities and memorable experiences; we want our students to grow Jewishly.
2Israel Experience & EducationHillel cultivates among Jewish students a passion about Israel and a sense of personal attachment with the country and its people. Hillel provides all students opportunities to learn about Israel and its central role in defining the Jewish experience today and provides a safe space for students to express a wide spectrum of views regarding their relationships with Israel.
3Tzedek/Social JusticeHillel engages and empowers students in meaningful public service and inspires students to address social justice issues creatively. Through a variety of volunteer projects, students are able to explore Jewish values and social justice.
4Community BuildingHillel engages students in meaningful relationships that build strong Jewish communities on campus. We help students relate to the world by nurturing Jewish identity and growth through pluralistic, inclusive, and engaging environments.
5Leadership DevelopmentHillel challenges and supports students as they develop as future leaders of the Jewish community and the world. Students develop skills that help them become reflective and critical thinkers, inspire and motivate others, develop and enhance a personal leadership philosophy, and work collaboratively with their communities.
