Jewish Life

Jewish life is centered in the program of the Hillel Foundation. Hillel sponsors a variety of events on campus, including films, speakers on topics of Jewish concern, and brunches. The traditional Chanukah Party and Community Passover Seder are highlights of the year. Jewish students are invited to attend High Holiday services at Beth Israel Congregation, less than a mile from campus.

Hillel also helps plan the annual Lipman Lecture, which has brought Elie Wiesel, Cynthia Ozick, Chaim Potok, and others to campus.
