As we continue to emerge from COVID-19, we remain committed to being here for you, our students, our young adults, and our community. Your health and well-being remains our greatest priority. We continue to actively monitor the information and updates regarding the coronavirus and vaccine availability from several sources including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
As of May 1st, we began to offer socially-distanced, outdoor programs/Shabbat experiences for smaller groups of students in our Sukkah court, courtyard, and basketball court. Our Hillel building is now open for smaller indoor programming, in addition to holding many of our events in person, outdoors. Our Covid reopening committee, including board members (with facility and medical expertise), staff, and students, has been meeting as needed to make safe and thoughtful decisions as to how and when to open our facility for programming now that our staff and many of you are all fully vaccinated.
You can find our staff 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!

In addition, Hillel International will continue to offer the fantastic digital platform “Hillel@Home” (https://welcome.hillel.org/hillelathome/) designed to host online experiences for students, centered around video meet-ups, courses, and guest speakers and instructors. These online experiences are open to all students and focus on topics of spirituality, wellness, learning, community and peoplehood that aim to provide you with compelling content and Jewish community.
COMING TO HILLEL: Our building is currently open by appointment only, and for small, indoor programming. We strongly encourage everyone to continue to comply with the three “W’s”: Wash your hands often, wear a mask if you are not vaccinated, and watch your distance. We ask that you respect your own health and the health and safety of others. Do not come to Hillel if:
- You are sick or feel sick.
