Your student has a place to be Jewish at the University of Arizona…. it’s called Hillel.
Perhaps no one is more concerned about supporting Jewish life on campus today than the parents of current students. You can help us further students’ Jewish journeys by supporting Hillel financially. The UA Hillel welcomes ALL students. There are NO MEMBERSHIP FEES and almost all of the ACTIVITIES ARE FREE.
Providing opportunities for students to continue their Jewish journey as they begin to make choices for themselves is especially important to parents. It’s why Hillel exists. Hillel encourages strong friendships and a sense of community by providing programs and leadership opportunities for students to be able to continue their Jewish exploration post high school.
Programs at Hillel are created for and by students with the aid of professional staff. Check out the calendar where you might find Shabbat and Holiday services, Jewish film viewings, discussions on relevant issues, bbqs, open mic nights, or softball games. The multitude of options – cultural, religious, recreational, spiritual - are designed to appeal to a wide variety of students. Something is bound to capture the interest of your student.
Is your student eligible to go on a free 10-day trip to Israel through Birthright? The UA Hillel leads students on this phenomenal experience during winter break. Hillel also offers students opportunities to participate in social justice projects on Alternative Spring Break trips.
