Berkeley Hillel is proud to be celebrating nearly a century as the Jewish student center for the UC Berkeley campus. While a decade ago Hillel primarily served as the campus synagogue, we are now a synagogue, community center, place for Jewish learning, Israel advocacy training ground, and much much more.
Hillel is a place for students to put down their heavy bags after a long day and filter through the refrigerator. It is a place where students connect with their Jewish peers through social action projects in the community, Jewish learning, Israel advocacy, or simply by chowing down on burgers at the Wednesday night BBQ. It is a place where students expand their understanding of Judaism and question what it is and what it means to them. We have a committed staff of seven who students come to know and love.
We would love to hear from you, to field any questions you have about Jewish Life at Cal, or just to say hello. Please stop on by!
