Jewish Life On Campus

How many Jewish students are there at Queen’s? We don’t have the exact statistic, but we estimate that close to 1,500 out of approximately 22,000 Queen’s students are Jewish.

Queen’s Hillel is the centre for Jewish life on campus. We provide social, educational and religious opportunities to ensure that there is a vibrant Jewish community at Queen’s University. Queen’s Hillel creates a pluralistic environment in which Jews, regardless of denomination or religious belief, feel comfortable and included. Whether it be one of our eight annual Shabbat dinners, our Holocaust Education Week activities, Israel experience and engagement programs, countless Tzedek initiatives that take us into the greater Kingston community, or our legendary Bar Mitzvah Bash, Queen’s Hillel truly has something for everyone.
