We believe in the importance of Israel as one of the many core elements of Jewish life.
Hillel UW recognizes that our students represent a wide range of feelings about and relationships with Israel. Hillel UW provides our students with a pluralistic community and our staff is fully committed to Israel programming and Israel dialogue that is safe, civil, complex, and supportive.
