Enriching the lives of Laurier’s Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish community, Israel and the world.
ABOUT HILLEL LAURIER
Wilfrid Laurier University is a dynamic campus that has become a destination for Jewish students across Ontario and beyond. Hillel Laurier strives to build a Jewish community on campus that provides students the opportunity to share their Judaism, discover the pluralism that exists at Laurier, and celebrate Jewish life, culture, and heritage. Whether your interests lie in Jewish Life and Education, Tzedek and Social Action, Arts and Culture, Athletics, Israel, Leadership Development or anything in between, opportunities for involvement exist through Hillel Laurier.
We aim to empower our students to create Jewish life on campus that is meaningful and relatable to them. Connect with our diverse community through our regular coffee schmoozes & bagel brunches held on campus. Each month our Shabbat dinners focus on highlighting important Jewish values chosen by our students, including helping those in need and building an inclusive community. The remainder of our student driven programming features engaging speakers, movie nights, holiday programming, and so much more.
Jewski is the group for Russian-speaking Jewish students on campus. It is designed to connect Russian speaking students to each other as well as to the greater Jewish community on campus. Programs range from paid internships, social and cultural programming, “Novyy god” and holiday celebrations as well as an opportunity to participate in our elite J.LEAD Training Program. Once a Jewski, always a Jewski!
