To our Hillel of Silicon Valley Community,

The coronavirus is disrupting our lives in unprecedented ways. We know this evolving situation is stressful and confusing. We recognize that this is a difficult time for so many and each person in our community will have different needs. 

Hillel of Silicon Valley’s Programming Goes Digital!
In compliance with the Order of Health Officer of the County of Santa Clara, Hillel of Silicon Valley is sheltering in place and have moved our programming online! Our staff is continuing to engage students with Jewish life in creative ways, from Cafe Hillel, a weekly coffee break style check-in Zoom call, to our online Shabbat candle lighting. You can find our ongoing events here on our Facebook page or a list of ongoing events on our LinkTree page.  

Let’s Stay Connected!
We are in touch with our students to assess their needs and plan to develop opportunities to keep our students engaged and connected. Click here to sign up for our weekly newsletter to stay up-to-date with updates and announcements. Our staff is available! Click here for staff contact information.
