Fall 2020 will have a virtual retreat. This will be a week of online gatherings, which will give both new and current students, the opportunity to get to know one another, take a break from the start of classes, and find out the many ways to get involved in the Hillel community throughout your time at Cal!


Check out details below for past and future retreats!

Our annual retreat for new students is a long-time favorite of Jewish Cal Students. Hillel takes a group of 60+ students to a beautiful retreat center nearby to get a break from the craziness of school to meet new friends and enjoy the amazing nature the Bay Area has to offer.

Some things to look forward to:

  • Campfire on the beach
  • Hiking trails and amazing stargazing
  • Team building with other Jewish students
  • Three kosher meals, transportation, and lodging

All for only $25.00!


**The dates of the New  Student Retreat are Saturday, September 12th, 2020 to Sunday,  September 13th, 2020. The Hillel staff will be sending out updates as they become available concerning how the Retreat will change in light of COVID-19 and “Shelter-in-Place” regulations.**
