Jewish Life on Campus

Hillel Ontario puts students at the centre of their Jewish experience by providing meaningful and relevant opportunities for them to connect to Judaism and their Jewish identities.

Why Hillel? 

We have a brief and critical four-year window of opportunity to form a connection with Jewish students and achieve our vision of inspiring every Jewish student in Ontario to make an enduring connection to Jewish life, learning, and Israel. As the largest Jewish student organization in the world, Hillel enriches the lives of Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish people,  and the world.

Israel & Advocacy

Israel is core to Jewish identity.
Hillel provides opportunities for Jewish students to learn about and engage with Israel and advocates for the
safety and security of Jewish students on campus.  By doing so, Jewish students proudly show their support for Israel and cultivate more robust Jewish identities.

Life on Campus

Jewish campus life ranges from
smaller initiatives to planning major social events or being part of transformative global travel experiences. At any Hillel Ontario campus, Jewish students can express their views, values, and opinions at a place they can call home.

Make a Difference

Did you know that 95% of young Jewish adults between the ages of 18-24 years old can be found on a university or college campus somewhere across North America? There is no better investment in the Jewish future. Jewish students at universities across the province thank you for your generosity and support.
