Hillel is the largest Jewish campus organization in the world. Its mission is to maximize the number of Jews doing Jewish with other Jews. Hillel actively seeks to engage uninvolved Jewish students on their own terms: to provide them with meaningful and appealing opportunities in which to participate as Jews movements and offer students a safe place to be Jewish.
At Hillel, students are empowered to take responsibility for their Jewish identity, whether they wish to participate in a community service project, express themselves artistically, participate in a social event, engage in informal Jewish learning or attend religious services. Any student may participate in Hillel —no membership is required. Hillel is committed to a pluralistic vision of Judaism that embraces all. This includes non-Jewish students.
Hillels of Westchester is committed to reach college students at a time when they are questioning their identities and their life goals. We are here to show how their Jewish identity is part of a rich creative life. A Jewish life that will contribute to a changing world.
Hillel's mission is to enrich the lives of Jewish college 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.
