Student Life | Get Involved
Hillel provides a welcoming atmosphere to students from all backgrounds and communities. Hillel offers a variety of leadership opportunities to bring fresh ideas and new visions to Jewish campus life. Their varied interests ranging from theater to Greek life to Israel provide numerous entry points for participating in Hillel activities.
Currently, events are virtual. We partner with the Washington Society of Jewish Deaf and other Jewish deaf organizations for a variety or programs.

What is the Birthright Israel Trip?
Birthright Israel provides a gift of a peer group, educational trip to Israel for Jewish young adults ages 18 to 26 from around the world. We want young Jewish people to come to Israel, see it, experience it, talk about it, and think about what Israel means for them and the Jewish people.
