Whether your student is new to UCLA or is returning, we want you to know that Hillel exists to be a home away from home for all Jewish students.
Hillel is an ideal place for students to explore their spirituality and to pray as well as to simply hang out with other Jewish peers. Hillel brings Jewish life to students both within and outside of our building’s walls, whether at a beach party, an on-campus event, a Birthright trip to Israel or in our very own Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. Hillel programs provide a gateway for students to come into their own as Jewish leaders of their campus community while preparing for a life informed by a strong connection to their core Jewish values and identity.
Shabbat is Hillel’s most popular weekly program, attracting 150-250 students for an unmatched Jewish experience. Each Friday night during the school year, we offer pluralistic services and delicious kosher dinners for all students in need of a place to share fellowship while continuing their Jewish tradition.
As a parent of a Jewish Bruin, we hope you’ll partner with Hillel and enable us to provide vibrant Shabbatot and other enriching pluralistic Jewish experiences to all Jewish students at UCLA. Your donation to Hillel will open the doors of opportunity for Jewish life to blossom on campus!
We hope you’ll be heartened by knowing that we offer a safe and welcoming environment for your child, and a myriad of opportunities for his or her personal growth in Jewish life.
