Hillel: A Place to Connect and Learn

“One of the things that got me involved in Allegheny College’s Hillel is its small yet strong community.  If I was at a larger school, I don’t know if I would have gotten involved in Hillel, but at Allegheny I feel a responsibility and sense of dedication to maintaining and growing our Jewish community on campus.  The amazing support of Allegheny College students, faculty, staff, and administration makes being part of Hillel a truly rewarding and enriching experience.”

—Aviv Crowell Lang, ’15
