New Students

We’re excited you’re coming to UC Berkeley! This school and city have so much to offer, and we’re ready to share the diverse opportunities for involvement in the Jewish campus community at Cal with you. Ranging from fellowships and paid internships to our weekly BBQs, Shabbat dinners, and visiting speaker events, Berkeley Hillel has something for everyone.

For more information about first-year programs, email Molly Shapiro, at mshapiro@berkeleyhillel.org.  She’d be happy to answer any questions or connect you with a current student!
