Israel is at the heart of Hillel SV’s work. Our goal is to inspire every Jewish college student to develop a meaningful and enduring relationship to Israel and to Israelis. Whether they want to engage in deep dialogue or are politically active in mobilizing others to support Israel, we enable students to share a rich connection to Israel and to each other as a people. Engaged and educated students can become committed Jewish adults who are passionate supporters of Israel.
Hillel SV’s Israel engagement efforts focus on:
Israeli culture, history, and current events is conveyed to students through programs such as our “Speaking with Impact” series, speakers, films, and weeklong celebrations of Sephardi and Mizrahi culture and Yom Ha’Atzmaut (Israel Independence Day), and other informal programs.
