Hillel UW is fortunate to have a community of students, alumni, young adults, parents, and friends engaged in our mission. Hillel creates a safe and innovative space for young Jewish adults to connect with Judaism, with each other, and with broader communities. If you would like more information on our work, about our upcoming events and programs, sign up for our community newsletter.
We are all stakeholders in the future of our Seattle Jewish community. Hillel UW benefits from the financial contributions of our community. Here, you can see our annual impact reports that capture how your investment helped fulfill the needs of our students and young adults.

Hillel UW has created a LIFE & LEGACY® Program for those who have included Hillel UW in their wills or estate plans. Legacy giving is a wonderful way to invest in the future of our Jewish community and grow Hillel’s endowment. For more information on this program, click here.
Our whole community comes together annually for the High Holidays and Passover.
We invite you to join Hillel UW for our High Holiday services. All members of our community are welcome to celebrate Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur with us. We offer both a traditional egalitarian service in Hebrew and a liberal service. Advance reservations are required. We invite donations from community members. Student tickets are always free.
Since 1941, UW students and the greater Seattle Community have joined Hillel UW to celebrate Passover. Last year, Hillel welcomed 625 students, Jconnectors, and community members at our Passover Seders and Lunches. Additionally, our Kosher for Passover Food Truck provided 200 meals throughout our community.
All Passover meals served at Hillel are prepared by Leah’s Catering of Seattle under the supervision of the Va’ad HaRabanim of Greater Seattle and are offered at a subsidized fee thanks to generous donation to our Annual Morris Pollack Passover campaign.
