Hillel: A Place to Connect and Learn

Hillel is a student-led organization that supports and encourages the exploration of Jewish life and culture through religious, educational, and social programs. Students in Hillel work to provide a community that helps Jewish students celebrate, learn, and explore Jewish heritage.


Activities include:

  • Weekly Shabbat Services and Dinners
  • High Holiday Services
  • Decorating the Sukkah
  • Hanukkah Party
  • Purim Party
  • Passover Seder
  • Experiential Learning and Service Trips
  • Participation in Regional Holocaust Remembrance Events

“The small but growing population of Jewish students actually turned out to make my Jewish experience at Allegheny even better! The members of Hillel and even just students who consider themselves Jewish but aren’t as active, are much more connected than what I had expected.”
