Hillel IDC is one of 8 Hillel centers in Israel. Hillel Israel seeks to emphasize the relevance of Jewish life to today's Israeli students and young adults, inspiring them to explore their Jewish identity and to feel a sense of belonging to "The Global Jewish People."
Hillel Israel creates encounters with Jews from abroad, exposing Israeli students to Jewish life and tradition outside of Israel.Â This enables the Israeli student to experience, then teach, about living Judaism in a fresh and exciting way.
Hillel at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya opened in January 2006, offering Jewish programming and extracurricular activities to the 3000 undergraduate and graduate students studying on campus.
