History of our Hillel

Founded in 1995 and separately incorporated in 2004, Hillels of Westchester is a campus-based organization that serves the 1,300 Jewish students at Purchase College, Sarah Lawrence College, Pace University - Pleasantville, and Manhattanville College.  We offer students of diverse backgrounds a broad array of unique experiences that nurture and deepen their Jewish identities whether spiritual, philosophical, historic, cultural, social, or ethical.  We partner with Westchester rabbis and faculty from Jewish Studies programs to enhance Jewish learning and scholarship, as well as support the diverse identities of the aforementioned educational institutions.  Recognized for our extensive work in Jewish student outreach and leadership development, Hillels of Westchester achieved the status of “Hillel Foundation” in 2007. This multi-campus Hillel serves approximately 1,300 undergraduate and 100 graduate students on four liberal arts campuses; Purchase College, Sarah Lawrence College, PACE University-Pleasantville and Manhattanville College.
