There are so many different ways to get involved at each of our Hillel campuses. Visiting this website is a great start! Continue to explore the Our Campuses section of the website. Following your preferred campus on social media will keep you up to date on all upcoming events and programs. You can always email any of the staff or student leaders. We would be happy to meet you in person over a cup of coffee, tea or even a smoothie!
Of course!! Greater Philly Hillel Network’s campuses are open to anyone and everyone. Hillel is often seen as a religious organization and while that is true we are not only a religious organization. We offer so much more - cultural and social programs, community service opportunities, leadership training, etc.
Hillel sponsors religious services during the High Holidays, as well as holiday meals for all major Jewish Holidays. Each of our campuses does their Shabbat and holidays a little different, but always student-lead and always with a lot of ruach (spirit) and love! To learn more about a specific campuses holiday events, please check out the “Our Campuses” page.
Each year, Greater Philly Hillel Network partners with The Reconstructionist Rabbinical College to provide each of our campuses with a Rabbinic Intern for the entire school year. Our students gain a tremendous amount of knowledge and cool experiences and we are able to help better prepare each Rabbinical school for life on the pulpit.
All of our campuses have student-led communities. Students create, plan, and promote programs that inspire and connect students across their respective campus. Our students are under the guidance of our professional staff, who helps make sure their program ideas are made into a reality.
Each of our campuses has a designated staff person. Some of our staff is full-time, while others are part-time. Interested in learning more about our staff? Click here to visit our Professional Staff page.
The vast majority of our work is supported by individuals like you - alumni, parents, faculty and staff, community members and friends of Jewish life on campus. Greater Philly Hillel Network is also funded in larger part thanks to the generous support that we receive from Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia.
