Young Israel House at Yale

YIHY is the student organization responsible for Orthodox student life on campus. We provide support, programming, and learning opportunities to the observant community, as well as reaching out to the greater Jewish population at Yale.

JiNH: Jews in New Haven

Jews in New Haven (JiNH) is a non-denominational and pluralistic social community of Jewish professionals and graduate students in their 20s and 30s in the New Haven area. We include students, partners, Yale staff and faculty, and others who want to get involved. There are no membership fees, but some of our more expensive events do cost a small amount of money.

The Joseph Slifka Center funds the organization, with Juli Goodman currently serving as JiNH coordinator. JiNH periodically sponsors discounted Shabbat dinners and other events at Slifka. Beyond these regular happenings, JiNH puts on a wide range of religious, social, and cultural activities. While we know that not everyone will want to come to every single one, we hope that everyone can find something to connect to and get involved with, and we can always use the help of members to suggest and plan events.

Welcome to Yale’s Jewish graduate and professional community! Whether you’re new to campus or have returned to Yale to continue your studies, we look forward to seeing you at JiNH events throughout the year.

Yale Hillel

Welcome to Yale Hillel, housed at the Joseph Slifka Center for Jewish life at Yale University. We at Yale Hillel foster a vibrant, active, and diverse community on campus that is above all welcoming and inclusive. This website serves as a guide to the various aspects of our organization and includes many ways of getting involved. Yale Hillel offers a plethora of means for students to explore and celebrate their Jewish identities. They can dine on kosher meals every day, plan social action events , participate in study with rabbinic scholars, party at the annual Chanukah Ball, lead Shabbat services, travel to Israel, continue their personal journey in Jewish discovery, and make lifelong friendships.

Yale Hillel is a community that enthusiastically embraces the range of Jewish backgrounds and experiences on campus. Come in and take a look around, both online and at the Slifka Center for Jewish Life at Yale, home of Yale Hillel. We look forward to meeting you!
