About

The largest Jewish campus organization in the world, Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life, provides opportunities for Jewish students at more than 500 colleges and universities to explore and celebrate their Jewish identity through its global network of regional centers, campus Foundations and Hillel student organizations. Hillel is working to provoke a renaissance of Jewish life.

Hillel's mission is to enrich the lives of Jewish undergraduate and graduate students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world. Hillel student leaders, professionals and lay leaders are dedicated to creating a pluralistic, welcoming and inclusive environment for Jewish college students, where they are encouraged to grow intellectually, spiritually and socially. Hillel helps students find a balance in being distinctively Jewish and universally human by encouraging them to pursue tzedek (social justice), tikkun olam (repairing the world) and Jewish learning, and to support Israel and global Jewish peoplehood. Hillel is committed to excellence, innovation, accountability and results.

Hillel is renowned for being one of the most dynamic, active and welcoming student organizations you'll find at Baruch College. Celebrating the Jewish experience is our top priority, and we've created a warm environment that gives students the means to do so in fun and exciting ways.

We take great pride in the social, spiritual and intellectual growth that students realize during their time spent with Hillel. And thanks to the countless events we host throughout the year, you have ample opportunities to explore Judaism and connect with a friendly, diverse group of people.

The commuter students that attend Baruch College come from diverse backgrounds.  Jewish students here represent the Former Soviet Union, Persian, Bukharian, Syrian, Israeli, and American-born students.  Club activities take place during club hours on campus and away from campus at locations across Manhattan.  Activities are centered around our primary pillars of...

  • Avodah - Career Development
  • K'lal Yisrael - The Global Jewish Community
  • Neshama - Arts and Culture
  • Tikkun Olam - Repairing the World Through Service
  • Torah - Jewish Learning and Observance

We encourage you to learn more and discover how Hillel can impact your life.
