Hillel: The Center for Jewish Campus Life,
is the student address for Jewish activities at the University of Louisville and other college campuses in the Louisville area. Hillel offers social events, community service programs, cultural activities and educational programs about Jewish life and Israel. Regional, national and international Hillel conferences are also heavily subsidized for the local participants.
In addition, Hillel provides advocacy and advisory services for the local student population as well as hospitality for Jewish holidays and referrals to synagogues. Hillel is the address for those students looking to explore their Jewish identity and to meet other Jewish students. Hillel also encourages students to participate in Birthright Israel, a fully subsidized trip to Israel for young adults, age 18-26, who have never experienced Israel on a peer trip.
The Hillel office is located on the U of L campus in the Interfaith Center. Office hours are by appointment. Heading out of town? Stay Connected with a free subscription to Community.
