The Hillel of Southwest Florida is a new and exciting program here at Florida Gulf Coast University. This Hillel, formerly known as the Jewish Student Organization, transformed fall 2005 and has been growing ever since. This Hillel caters to everyone! Jewish, non-Jewish, not sure, everybody is welcome. We have students representing all "flavors" of Judaism. Hillel of Southwest Florida has hosted a variety of events here at FGCU. We have hosted Shabbat Quickies and A Purim Masquerade Ball and the most popular Holiday celebration has been our Passover Seders, in which large numbers of non-Jewish students attended as well as Jewish professors and staff. Our non-religious events have included: "Jews on Ice", Jew-day-a, and Jew-pardy. This group offers peer support, community engagement, networking and multicultural experiences that everyone can take advantage of and grow from.
