Enriching the lives of McMaster’s Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish community, Israel and the world.

About McMaster Hillel

McMaster Hillel is your Jewish home away from home. A pluralistic and dynamic organization that empowers Jewish students to curate Jewish life on campus, McMaster Hillel has an explicit goal of enriching your Jewish and leadership experience while at university. Whether you join us for a Bagel Lunch in the Commons Building, volunteer for a leadership position on our student executive or engage in some of our innovative programming, McMaster Hillel has something for everyone.

Bagels and Beyond in Togo Salmon Hall

Every Wednesday from 12:00-2:00 p.m, Hillel serves a FREE full kosher lunch of bagels, lox and cream cheese, fresh fruits and vegetables, hummus and dips, snacks and treats and much, much more. Togo Salmon Hall, B112

Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or drop by the office (Togo Salmon Hall, B112) to find out how you can get involved and experience the vibrancy of Jewish life at McMaster.


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!

For more information about Jewski, please contact Melanie Rose at melanie.rose@hillelontario.org


Hillel is fortunate to partner with the Orthodox Union/Jewish Learning Initiative on Campus (OU/JLIC). JLIC strives to engage and educate students from varied backgrounds by providing avenues for spiritual development and exploration. By placing talented educators on campus, JLIC inspires young adults to take ownership and responsibility for their Jewish lives and communities.

JLIC provides classes on a wide variety of topics and hosts social events throughout the year.
