Hillel of Greater Philadelphia inspires Jewish students to cultivate and maintain their Jewish identity, to bond with other Jewish college students and to share a broad spectrum of religious, cultural and social experiences. Hillel professionals connect with students in a myriad of ways including hundreds of coffee and lunch dates, one-on-one learning opportunities and an extraordinary variety of programming planned with the diverse needs of the region's Jewish student population in mind. HGP serves over 3,000 individual students who actively participate in more than 1,500 Hillel programs on campuses in Philadelphia. These include religious services, social and educational programming, tzedek events, and leadership development opportunities. This past year, our Israel Initiative Program served 615 students on Philadelphia campuses with 27 Israel advocacy and educational programs and created 50 student leadership opportunities. Student committees plan and implement all of our programs and events, limited only by their imagination. Become part of Hillel and put your own ideas into action!
