Your health and well-being remains our greatest priority. All full-time Hillel UW staff are fully vaccinated. But as the new delta variant continues to spread, we have reinstated our mask-wearing policy inside of our building. All staff and visitors are once again required to wear a mask indoors regardless of their vaccination status. We continue to actively monitor the information and updates regarding the delta variant, Covid-19 and vaccine availability from several sources including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Our Hillel building is now open for smaller indoor programming, in addition to holding as many of our events as possible in person, outdoors. Our Covid response committee, including board members (with facility and medical expertise), staff, and students, has been meeting as needed to guide us in making safe and thoughtful decisions.
You can find our team members working both in the building as well as continuing to have the option of working remotely as needed. We welcome you getting in touch with us!
We continue to monitor the University of Washington and the Washington State Department of Health websites as we plan our programming for the Fall. While there are still many uncertainties, one thing is for sure: we will do our best to bring you the vibrant, warm, and creative Jewish community that Hillel UW is known for!
Our amazing Hillel UW staff and student leadership board remains committed to developing innovative ways to connect with you, and for you to connect with each other, and are excited to welcome our new class of 2025 and returning UW students. If you are new to Hillel UW, please email us!

COMING TO HILLEL: Our building is currently open by appointment only, and for small, indoor programming.
