Welcome to the Jewish Community at Penn!

Penn Hillel is one the best parts of being at Penn. Each year, Hillel reaches over 2,200 undergraduate students with a dizzying array of different Jewish opportunities ranging from social justice to Israel, and from Jewish culture offerings to Jewish religious expression. No matter what your interest or Jewish background, Penn Hillel is there to get know each and every Jewish student by name and by story so that we can help connect them to the next set of experiences, communities, and relationships that will provoke them to grow into Jewish adulthood.

Hillel is proud to offer a two-pronged approach to engaging Jewish students on campus. Inside the Steinhardt Hall under the banner of Hillel, there are over 25 different student groups who create over 300 events per month. This includes a weekly soup kitchen, a wide variety of opportunities to engage with and learn about Israel, word famous speakers and public intellectuals, and alternative break trips to Rwanda, South America, Israel and beyond. All of this is in addition to the nearly 500 students who are part of Shabbat each week (we offer five different services on Friday night and two options on Saturday morning).

With Love from Hillel

Hi! My name is Katie, and I'm the incoming president of Penn Hillel. Right now I'm studying abroad at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, but I cannot wait to get back to Penn in January and get to work with my amazing new board!
