Get Involved

You don't have to be in the Cohn Jewish Student Center to be involved Jewishly on campus - there are four other diverse and welcoming Jewish student organizations on campus  - Achoti, First Year Students of Hillel, Golden Flashes for Israel, and Ruach Queer Jewish Spirit. Scroll through this page to learn more about the unique Jewish communities on campus.

Opportunities to grow, learn, and connect are always available through programming, coffee dates, and more.  Hillel strives to create a campus community where 'being Jewish' exists in diverse spaces and meets the needs of as many students as possible.
