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 Hillel Formal, 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!
