Who We Are
Established in the summer of 2019, Greater Philly Hillel Network is a brand new Hillel in the greater Philadelphia region which serves over 800 Jewish students at Philadelphia’s “Small but Mighty” campuses, namely Bryn Mawr College, Haverford College and West Chester University , Villanova University and St. Joseph's University! In addition, we run a nationally recognized program, the Jewish Graduate Student Network, that supports over 3,000 graduate students from across the region. Unfortunately, these Hillels have been underserved and under-resourced for way too long, and we’re here to ensure that every student has access to a thriving Jewish community.
We are committed to supporting each and every Jewish student on campus. We aim to create a vibrant Jewish community that provides opportunities for diverse forms of Jewish expression through an exciting array of activities throughout the school year. Whether it’s a coffee date with one of our Hillel professionals, a Shabbat dinner, an educational program or any of our hundreds of programs throughout the year, we believe that creating meaningful Jewish experiences for college students fosters an enduring connection to Jewish life in our community's future leaders.
We’re truly so excited to hear from you, please do not hesitate to reach out to any of our incredible staff!
