Welcome to Hillel
We are creating an exciting renaissance of Jewish life on Chicago campuses.
We are the catalyst for students to explore and consciously define their Jewish identity at DePaul University, Loyola University, Columbia College Chicago, The University of Illinois at Chicago, Northeastern Illinois University, Oakton Community College, Illinois Institute of Technology, Roosevelt University, and the School of the Art Institute. The only pluralistic Jewish organization serving thousands of students on Chicago campuses is Metro Chicago Hillel.
We bring Hillel to you, on campus, in the dorms, or a coffee shop. All our events and programs are open to students from all our campuses, and several times a year we work to intentionally bring all our communities together for larger, city-wide events.
No matter your interest or background, we are here to get to know you by name and by story. We want to connect you to the next set of experiences, communities, and relationships that will provoke you to grow spiritually, intellectually, and socially.
Learn about all that Metro Chicago Hillel has accomplished in the past year and how we hope to grow Jewish life on Chicago college campuses in the upcoming year!
