Hillel is the Jewish Student Center at the University of Rhode Island. Our building is located at 6 Fraternity Circle but our activities take place throughout campus and in the community.
Hillel creates a warm and caring atmosphere where students are encouraged and empowered to explore Judaism in ways that are meaningful to them. We offer a full array of social, cultural, religious, community service and Israel related programming, as well as leadership development opportunities. There is something for everyone at Hillel.
Mission:Hillel enriches the lives of Jewish undergraduate and graduate students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world.
Hillel is committed to
• Creating a pluralistic, welcoming, and inclusive environment
• Fostering student growth
• Advancing social justice, Jewish learning, and spirituality
• Embracing Israel and global Jewish peoplehood
• Delivering excellence, innovation, accountability and results
Hillel seeks to engage every Jewish student on campus, from those with strong Jewish backgrounds to those with none at all. Hillel welcomes all students to take advantage of its resources, initiatives, and services; no membership is required.
