Program Funding Request
The most important thing to know about leadership, is that anyone can get funding for an initiative that furthers the Jewish community at Cal. You don’t have to be in one of the official leadership positions below to plan an event, start a club, or organize a group. We believe in investing in all students, so if you don’t find an existing opportunity that suits your needs, just fill out the funding request form and we’ll give you the support and $ to get you rolling.

Student groups at Berkeley Hillel are members of the Jewish Student Union (JSU). The JSU is a democratically governed umbrella group, affiliated with both Berkeley Hillel and the Associated Students of the University of California. The JSU groups receive both funding and advice from the staff of Berkeley Hillel but are empowered to create programming independently so long as it accords with the Berkeley Hillel/JSU overall policy on Israel programming.
Berkeley Hillel is available as a meeting/event venue for all student groups that are members of the Jewish Student Union (JSU). The JSU makes its own membership determinations, as advised by the University of California and Berkeley Hillel staff. The views presented at these programs are not necessarily those of Berkeley Hillel, its staff, board or supporters.
Some student leaders…and a djembe.
