Prospective Students

Looking at Yale? Want to know more about Jewish life on campus?

If you are a high school student considering Yale University, we hope you’ll check out the Slifka Center for Jewish Life when learning about Yale. The Jewish community here is active, vibrant, and diverse, and Slifka plays a central role in bringing together all our community has to offer. Please take a look around our website and contact our Hillel student President, [email protected]  for more information — he is always happy to help!

If you are planning a visit to Yale University, make sure to stop by the Slifka Center at 80 Wall Street to have a meal, talk with students and staff, and learn more about the Jewish community at Yale. If you’re thinking about an overnight visit and would like to stay on campus with a Jewish undergraduate, or if you want to eat a meal with current students, please email Hillel’s Outreach Coordinator, [email protected].

You’re also more than welcome to spend a weekend with us and experience all that a Shabbat at Yale has to offer!

Thank you for considering Yale – we hope to see you soon at Hillel!
