Hillel UW empowers young adults to explore, connect, and celebrate Jewish life on campus and throughout our community!
Last year, Hillel UW’s undergraduate programs hosted over 180 events for over 700 participants. Nearly 300 of these students attended more than one activity and over 50 participated in “high-impact” programs such as Birthright Israel, alternative break programs, or served on our Student Leadership Board.
Hillel’s Jconnect program hosted 133 events for 1,600 participants with 600 adults attending more than one activity.
