Hillel Foundation at Ithaca College is a hub for Jewish leadership, innovation, social action, and self-exploration. Hillel strategically invests into the development of socially aware leaders on campus. We believe that our mission is to enrich the lives of Jewish undergraduate and graduate students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world. Students that take leadership roles within Hillel, tend to become very active in a larger student community, taking positions in student government, resident life, etc.
Hillel is an integral partner with Ithaca College and is committed to building a stronger student life on campus. Working out of interdenominational building on campus, Hillel serves as a link to connect Catholic, Protestant and Jewish communities, striving to provide opportunities for a meaningful interfaith dialogue.
Hillel fosters a visible and positive Jewish presence on campus, participates in interfaith and multicultural initiatives, and functions in partnership with other organizations of the Jewish community in the Ithaca area.
